Default Naval Uniform - Help Requested Please

Please see attached photo.

I believe that he is Royal Navy and guess end of 19th Century/beginning of 20th Century but I am not sure?

Can anyone please advise me when this photo would have been taken?

I assume that he is wearing his first GCB just above his elbow, but what is the other horizontal stripe at the top of his arm?

I'm not expecting anyone will identify him but if he is your Great Uncle Willie, all well and good!

Best wishes
