    Looks like he wears the two rank bars on the shoulder boards for a Junior Sgt.

    Always a bit problematic to judge colours on b/w photos, but it appears to be field service shoulder straps and collar tabs on his greatcoat, i.e. khaki or greyish brown. As mentioned, two rank stripes for Jr Sgt. The stripes came in red or dull orange on field service straps (or simply ink-marked). No numerals or initials visible on them, so it's impossible to say anything more about what unit he belonged to, I'am afraid. Probably khaki field service visor with EM or possibly NCO pattern RIA cockade.

    Cheers,
    Mike
