While looking into our family history it’s shown that one of my grandfathers sister married a soldier in 1910, I am thinking that he could have been stationed at the Hillsborough barrack as the relatives house was only a short distance from the barracks. I’ve found records saying that he died on 27/3/16 and he was in the Northumberland fusilliers, the information I have give me two different forenames the first being James Percival Wright which I found in parish records and the other name which matches up to his wife name and date of birth and notice of death is Joseph Wright, but knowing what regiment the uniform belongs to would be a big help.

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

Could this be the same man - looks to be a good resemblance?

Thanks for that, but no it’s not the same man, I have managed to trace him now. He served in the Royal Horse Artillery and later the Royal Field Artillery shortly after this photo was taken he was posted to Ambala in India, he rose through the ranks during ww1 where he finished as 2nd lieutenant but that’s as far as I’ve got.
