Help please with Uniform Identification Boer war and WW1

Surnames: Lennie, McClellan
I would appreciate if anyone with appropriate knowledge on the subject could identify the uniforms in these photos.
It has been suggested that these 2 photos which were clipped together in an .may be the same man.
On his WW1 Application form ( he applied in Australia) he states he had previously been in the NZ Volunteers for 13 months and 2 years in the Scottish Horse Troop Boer War .
He is actually 51 when he applies for WW1 but says he is 46 and a half.
His name is David McClellan when he signs up for WW1 but his actual name was David Lennie - McClellan was the name of his step father. I cant find any record of a Lennie or McClellan in the Scottish Horse Troop records at British archives though there is one David Lennie listed in the Imperial Yeomanry.
Im unfamiliar with all things military so would love any guidance anyone could give me
I cant find his name in any list of Scottish Horse Troop records
