I have a family photo (see below) and I am trying to confirm the identity of the man.
I have a suspicion who it is - the person was born in 1874 in England. So if he was in his 20s to 30s at the time of the photo that would make it late 1890s or more likely early 1900s.
My main problem is that I had no idea that this person served in the army. The uniform strikes me as more WW1 but I am no expert in such matters, not sure if similar uniforms were used pre-WW1.
The photo is firmly stuck in a frame at present and I have not tried to remove it because I do not want to damage it. However the back appears blank.
The question is, approximately what date was the photo taken, and does the uniform give any hints as to date, regiment or rank?
