Lantern Slide Number 56

This man served during the First World War and we think he is listed on the Castleton Presbyterian Church Roll of Honour.  He was featured in a lantern slide exhibition shown to the Castleton Congregation in December 1918.  Do you recognise him?  Might he be a relation?  Maybe you recognise his uniform, or he looks like your dad?  Was he from the York Road area of Belfast?  Let us know in the comments below if you have any clues or hints to who he might be.

    Probably a gun layer Royal Artillery, and a driver, ( a horse driver ), the boots look lie the kind drivers wore, with the tab over the front top, possibly also Royal Horse Artillery, the badge on his left uppersleeve looks like a gun layer’s trade badge.

    Hi Steve
    Thanks for your comment.
    I have him as Royal Field Artillery or Royal Horse Artillery. I was told that his Arm patch is that of Lewis Gunner. Is this the same as a gun layer’s trade badge?
    Appreciate any help you can provide.
    Karen 🙂

Any thoughts?
