Indian Airborne Wing?

Scots Bomber (?)

Can anyone help identify the regiment of this kilted Jock please?

It looks as if he has a bomber's grenade on his left cuff. Was this a recognised position for that badge?

All help appreciated....

Not really possible to be certain as it could also be WW2 although if so, probably early as elastic became a hard item to find later on.

Happy to be proved wrong.
