WW1 uniform

#1
hi there
I was wondering if anyone here could help in identifying my grandfathers uniform in this picture in any way. I have tried and failed to find him on ancestry WW1 records - I don't know his regiment or rank, this rather touching photo with his wife and 2 children was taken when he was on leave in about 1916 to attend the funeral of his youngest child who had died of whooping cough. His name was James Delaney, born 31.8.1972, and he served in the Boer War and WW1. He died in 1946. He was born in Bolton Lancashire where he lived all his life (apart from the army)in an Irish Catholic family I would like to find out what medals he won and where he served.
Many thanks for any pointers - I know the photo's poor quality it's the only one I have of him.
