  1. Does anyone recognize the uniform in the top photo? It has a serpent clasp belt & puttees on the legs. The name on the back of the photo is Sidney Scott. There are 2 Sidney Scotts. Sidney Scott Sr was born in London in 1857 and died in Camberwell, London 1910. His son also named Sidney Scott (positively identified in the second photo), was born in England in 1894 but came to Canada in 1912. He died in 1944 in Ontario. Sidney Scott Jr was a sapper in the 53rd Battalion Royal Canadian Engineers. I am trying to understand if the first photo is the father and the second the son or if the first photo just a younger version of Sidney Junior. It is a different uniform in any event. Is the first uniform possibly before WW1? The elder was deceased before the start of WW1. Thank you.
