Military History/I forgot to attach photos with ww1 uniform question


Full uniform
Full uniform  
Good evening! I was recently given an old military uniform. From what little I was told its from WW1, all original and the owner of it passed away about 10+ years ago.  I'm having trouble finding any similar uniforms, especially the plaid pants! Any and all help would be much appreciated!

Thanks! Unfortunately it will not help! Without my late friend I am helpless! Though the helmet looks like the British one (also used by US & Commonwealth/Empire forces) from WW1 though in use to and even during WW2 by some. Does that help?
