Tracing My Father's Regiment

All I have is an old photo of my father. I understand that he lied about his age (he was born in 1899) and enlisted in the British Army. He was injured very early in the First World War and returned to Britain for treatment. This photo was supposed to have been taken at that time.

I've been told that the epaulette shows he was in the Machine Gun Corps. Any further info would be appreciated.
