Please can anyone confirm whether the photo shows a uniform of a Corporal in the R.H.A.(Royal Horse Artillery) of the British Army in about the 1870s? An ancestor of mine was in the R.H.A in the 1870s stationed in India. I am attempting to identify if the photo is of my ancestor.

In 1876 he may have been a Corporal in RHA the Exeter Barracks . He died age 25 in Campbellpore Bengal, India in 1880 of heat stroke.

Any help would be grateful. Thank you in advance.

(Royal Horse Artillery )
