Default Help to identify Cap Badge Please!

Hello All,
Trying to identify the Cap Badge worn by Great Uncle - Thomas Brown STEWART b. 1900 Dundee Scotland. I cant find any matching service record for him and he would have been very young to have served for any length of time in the war. Could he have been a cadet or a Cyclist Corp member? Thanks for any help as I know the photo does not give a clear image of the badge.

Hello

He is a gunner in the Royal Artillery. He worked with horses as he wears spurs so that is not a cadet or cyclist photo.

He is possibly a member of the Territorial Army with the photograph taken in the 1920s?
