    Thankyou everyone for your help and sorry i havent had chance to get on the forum for a while after posting this.
    Can anyone make out the shoulder title?
    at first i thought it could be the embroidered title of a French Horn over "OXFORD" but i'm now not so sure.

    "…knowing him, and something of his deeds, it was impossible not to believe in greatness. In that square figure was housed a spirit of grandeur, and with his massive heroism went gentleness and modesty, even humility. He had no need to proclaim his virtue, for history would be his spokesman."
    Eric Linklater on Wavell.

    Hello Ed,

    This is not my subject of expertise but I would go also for the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, what most people seem to have missed is that the Photograph was taken in India.

    The 1st Battalion was stationed in Bangalore between 1882-1887, whilst the 2nd Battalion was stationed in India between 1886-into the 20th Century.

    If I am wrong, I will hold my hands up and apologies for taking up your time.

    Best wishes
