So this is a picture of my 3rd Great grandfather who was born in 1848, Kingsport, Nova Scotia. I was just wondering if anyone can tell me what unit he was apart of? artillery? infantry?. I was asking on other forums online, and people seem to think this photo was taken before the Boer War and that he was a Canadian Volunteer Militia. In another picture he has various medals, not sure if that makes a difference or not. I really would like to figure this out, and I would also love to apply for a copy of his service record, just need more information first. Any thoughts? And im new to this website, so I hope the photo can be seen, not sure if I uploaded it correctly or not.
