Well, it could be WWI or post WWI as the badge on the arm is a Cadet Force badge. Need a close up of the cap badge tomake a determination of unit.

Cap badge is the Machine Gun Corps. I have only ever owned one example of a known (and dated) WW1 tunic, so my knowledge on the subject is limited. But the cut of the tunic around the neck fastening seems a little odd?

If Kevin can give a close-up of a button, we may be able to ascertain a unit. The cadet badge on the sleeve, is I believe a post 1945 badge and there were plenty of boys units (such as the Duke of York's Royal Military School in Dover) that wore the SD jacket and pants until the early 1960s. As to the MG gun Corps badge ... I cannot say .. The cap may be separate to the coat. Buttons may solve it.
