    A great photograph. Note the 2 green bars on his tunic indicating the rank of Section Commander and the belt with snake clasp common to Empire Rifle Volunteer units. It is obvious that the Irish Volunteers modelled their ‘Other Ranks’ tunic on the British Army 1902 Pattern serge tunic, but with green epaulettes and geen pointed cuffs. Regards
