British uniform of 1865-1878

Recommended Posts

I have a photo of my Great grandfather in a British army uniform in the Cape Colony. It was during or after the Xhosa Frontier Wars.  I was told he was a captain. 

I am hoping members here can help me identify the uniform, which I hope will lead me to finding out more about Great grandfather and his army career.
