Scope and content
Full-length studio portrait of a soldier in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders displaying four wound stripes on his lower left sleeve. Wound stripes were introduced in July 1916 and could be applied retrospectively. The fact that this soldier is displaying wound stripes but no overseas service chevrons (introduced in December 1917) suggests the portrait dates from between these dates.
