Studio portrait, with painted back cloth, of Sid Edwards during/after WW1

Sid in uniform, looking very smart, but with muddy boots. His cap badge might be that of the Ox and Bucks Light Infantry. On his arm is a crossed axes badge, suggesting he was a pioneer. From a note in the photo album, this might have been taken in Winchester. Given that Sid was born in Buckinghamshire, in Brill, the Ox and Buck would be a natural choice for him, but how does this tie up with the other military photos of Sid Edwards in this archive?

An earlier photo (KL186) shows him in riding breeches and bandoleer, suggesting he was mounted, either in the cavalry or the field artillery, at that time, but he appears to have been in the infantry by the time of this photo.
