Help identifying a Jewish Soldier from 1919 #latvia #lithuania

Attached is a photo of my Grandfather. His name was Iossel Gernov. I believe it was taken around 1918-1919.
He was living in Riga, Latvia at the time, but originally was from Lithunaia.
Any information you can provide based on whether the uniform was Soviet or Latvian, the military division, rank or other relevant information would be appreciated.
I was told he died while in military service, so if there is a source for death records, or service records I would appreciate a link to those as well
