What a wonderful find and in very good condition from what the photographs show. Have to say I have never seen a Photograph showing the metal link epaulettes worn with Royal Scots buttons, I always associate them with Cavalry or mounted Units. The Medal ribbon appears to be a Volunteer Long Service award so he must have a good, long history to uncover, have you found anything out about him yet?

Regards Simon.

 3Hello Simon......

I have to agree with you that I also have never seen chain epaulets to an infantry unit.....   When in the service I used to have to wear them on my mess dress uniform.....   Have not learned much yet except that the family called me back today as they had found some sports medals he had won, 1895 Pistol 1st and Tug of War 1890, 3rd, the trouble is they do not have any information....   His name is so common that in FMP I get 100's of hits......
