hi pete.
Yes , that was the photo , bit similar .

hi littlehand.
I am not an expert on uniforms , but I think both photos have men still dressed in the red serge jacket , they still wore
the red jacket in the 1st Boer war of 1880-81.
cheers 90th.

Tunics are seven button home service, Glengarry later pattern.
I'd even go Volunteer reg, date C1895.

After a search around the best match I can come up with going off the collar & cuff facings is 'The Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry (ox and bucks)'

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Another possibility would be the 90th Light Infantry ...
