I am doing my family tree and found this photo of one of my relations, and been trying to find out the following information.

Can anyone tell me what rank - looks like an officer. What regiment, and if possible about what year about the photo might be taken. I am doing my family tree and found this photo of one of my relations, and been trying to find out the following information.

Thank you

Have you a close-up picture of his cap badge, or can you describe it? That would almost certainly tell you his regiment. I don't think he is an officer.

Pic1

I don't think he's an officer but his uniform with riding crop and bandolier suggests cavalry. The cap badge which looks like, laurel wreath, GR to centre with crown above looks like Royal Engineers, allowing for distortion on the cap badge, possibly Household cavalry. Photo taken around WW1, so many had them done, with a lot it was their last.

I agree with Bert1 that the badge could be Royal Engineers and around WWI. The Royal Engineers had mounted sections who helped haul heavy equipment.

If an officer he would have worn his Sam Browne Belt with Poss pistol and lanyard!

The gentleman in the second pic is obviously cavalry, are the chevrons pointing up unique to the Household cavalry?
might be a clue to his regiment.

Pic 2, We met a lady and gentleman at Birkenhead town hall when they had that genealogy fair ,as we have a name they have a database and can check the military records for a price so we left them to try and get us more info, the picture appears to have been taken during WWI in France, checkout the name at the bottom, so if and when we get told, I will add to this topic, it may help you to find out pic1's regiment or at least give you a better clue.
