I am not trying to be facetious, but how do we know the photo of this man actually is him?
Is there any provenance? Not familiar with The Wardrobe, or of its reliability.

"The Wardrobe" is the Regimental Museum of the Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment (Berkshire and Wiltshire). It is in Salisbury. It is that Regiment's equivalent to Brecon (for the Royal Welsh). Very reliable I would say.
