    Hi Ralph, a very nice image.

    Do you know his unit?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ralph. My knowledge on Imperial is weak.

    Would it be possible to zoom in on the shoulder boards?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Looks like a "48" to me, so a Regimental number.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Either that or a "43", possibly a "49". It is difficult to see. At first I couldn't make anything out.

    Hi Ade,
    I have tried a little closer. Looks like a "43" to me, but my eyes are not what they used to be.

    Hi Ralph, I ran your family name through Ancestry and came up with this:

    Boos Name Meaning

    Dutch and German: from a Germanic personal name, Boso, most probably from an element meaning ‘leader’, ‘nobleman’, or ‘arrogant person’.


    Cheers, Ade.
