Sgt. Andrew Foster Royal Field Artillery (d.22nd Oct 1915)

Andrew Foster is my great-grandfather, he served in the Royal Artillery before the Great War. In the photo, the badges on his cap and collar definitely show that he is in the Artillery, left side of the collar the insignia is a hair and an insect. This might denote a particular system in the artillery related with the field. He also has star badges on his right sleeve which indicate that he is in a Volunteer Artillery unit, the star on his lower sleeve denote 5 years efficient service, his rank Sergeant, 3 stripes, his medal might be long service or campaign medal, the volunteer long service medal (20yrs). They were like the TA of their time. The peaked cap he is wearing was adopted by the army c 1905. He is wearing the dress tunic; blue with red collar, which was discontinued around 1914 so the photo dates between 1905 and 1914.

Andrew was born on the 10th of September 1868 and was married to Eliza Jane Henderson. He died 23rd of October 1915 and his death certificate states he was a corporal 2nd/7th Royal Highland Regiment, died Brighton, 2nd Eastern General Hospital.
