Military cap badges

Getting side tracked today (best laid plans and all that) and going through my 'family research' I have this picture of a relative who is obviously in the forces c1965. Not subscribing to the likes of Ancestry at the moment so cannot check records, so from the photograph below, does anybody know what regiment he belongs to.

Looks suspicioulsy like the Royal Artillery, but I'm not even 50% sure. 🤔

Cheers.

Re: Military cap badges

Google Images, is your friend.....

enter "Royal Artillery Uniform"... and you will see various types, styles, depending on what "order of the day" the uniform is for..

You will notice a cap badge on one pic... and a "Collar badge" on another pic..

Thanks shutter, now 99% sure it's the Royal Artillery.

Well done. 🙂

Must admit @Champnet it does have that look about it, although I doubt very much any relative of mine. would have been in the SA. 😉

Re: Military cap badges

Its a bit hard to see, but it does look like an Artilary hat badge, plus the collar badges match!

Having shared barracks in Hildesheim and Soest with RA, I know a little about them.
