This unidentified private of the Oxfordshire  & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry was a highly decorated member of the International Order of Good Templars (I.O.G.T.). The badge of
this temperance society appears on the left side of his vest-like membership collar just below the star device. The round badge on the opposite side just below the crown which bears
the initials "D.G.C.T." may have been emblematic of the specific "lodge" to which he may have belonged. He was in all likelihood a member of his regiment's 1st battalion which was
stationed at Lucknow c. 1905.
