Identified as a member of the Queen's Royal West Surrey Regiment by the "Paschal Lamb" collar badges this young soldier is already a veteran of campaigning on India's infamous
North-West Frontier. He wears the ribbon for the 1895 India General Service Medal which he probably gained for the Tirah Campaign of 1897. He has a single Long Service & Good
Conduct stripe on his left sleeve (2 years service) and a marksman's qualification badge (two crossed rifles) above the stripe. He is most likely a member of the regiment's 1st
Battalion.
