It’s in the details…
One of the general distinctives of a First World War British uniform (as opposed to a Second World War one or modern one) was the extensive use of metallic shoulder titles giving the name of the regiment or battalion in abbreviated form. This was coupled with metallic collar insignia which would be the regimental badge. For example, later in ‘War Horse’ we see Albert Narracott wearing the uniform of the Dorsetshire regiment, as evidenced by the DORSET shoulder title in brass.
For his part, Capt.Nicholls does not seem to be wearing any shoulder titles and instead wears brass collar badges and a cap badge as shown by this screen-cap.
