They may of course be two personalities in one body.

That is possible in general, but probably not in this case, as there was no discernable personalit at all......

Not without using other software...but me missus told me size wasn't an issue

Seriously, that cap badge has got to have links to the rifles. Apart from the RGJ battle honours, all its missing is the naval cross (and the "Royal Green Jackets" running around the boss, obviously).

Nearly 100% of the TA has links to rifles inc London Scottish 'Rifles', Hallamshire 'Rifles', Leeds Rifles, Robin Hood 'Rifles', Chatsworth 'Rifles'

The battle honours are Boer war and probably WW1, like most they adopted a Rifles badge. I think many dropped the 'Rifle' title when they were forced to become a TA bn of a regular regiment in the 1900's. Derby used to have a very good (Sherwood Foresters?) museum on this subject, the change was hated. Nottinghams Sherwood Foresters museum is also a goo d one for the old volunteers history.
