On the shoulder title can be read "Royal Artillery". But the formation patch is for the Royal Canadian Artillery (attached to the First Canadian Army).

Is he British or Canadian?

It is possible that he is a CanLoan Officer...... Canadian Officers loaned for service in the British Army.....

Take a look here.....

More likely the reverse - a British officer serving at First Canadian Army, possibly AGRA (Army Group Royal Artillery (although the term applied equally to RCA)). A formation patch was not indicative of the wearer's nationality.

Thak You Gentlemen!

On the back of the photo can be read a dedication : a mon grand [unreadable] and a signature: Howard.

In addition, a blue ink date stamp: 1944 JUNI 20 (I'm not sure that is contemporary).
