Besides being someone's uncle named Herbert (based on a notation on the image's reverse side), all we know about this man
was that appears to have been a member of the
5th Regiment, the Royal Scots of Canada. The regiment originated in Montreal
as the 5th Regiment, Royal Light Infantry and transformed over the years into a Highland regiment and is known today as The
Black Watch (Royal Highlanders ) of Canada.
