Excellent photo! The battle dress of the soldier is not worn much but it could be his good uniform. I believe this to be original except for the coloring. You can see battle scars on his horse.

Actually I get the impression this is a pre-deployment picture. His gear is immaculate and shows little if any wear. I do have to say whichever this is, it is a great photo.

The photo was only colourised recently by Painting the Past from an original photo held by the family.

I believe this photo is a re-enactment photo. I think it unlikely that this image was taken in 1915. The veracity of this photo needs to be established right back to the original photographer. When was colour photography established?
