    grlune,

    The photo dates to 1900 to maybe 1902/3.

    The OR is wearing a Boer War era drab Serge Frock.

    Here is a lttle history on that Frock- Dicsusssion of meeting the demand for a serge drab frock was addressed by the ACD on 6 October 1899 when it was decided to produce Khaki Serge versions of the pattern 3901d/1899 Scarlet Serge Frock.


    Pattern 4914/1899 was sealed on 10 October 1899 "Frock, Khaki Serge"--it was further updated with 4914a/1901 before being declared obsolete several years later.

    He is wearing a Slouch hat.

    Regiment can't be determined. Might be a Yeomanry unit by the slouch hat but that is not 100% conclusive to him being in the Yeomanry as other types of units also wore this type of hat.

    Thank you Joe, that's interesting to know. Please excuse my ignorance, what does OR stand for as a reference to him?

    Graham,

    OR means "Other Ranks" or not a Warrant or Officer.
