Can anyone identify the Regiment of these fine fellows? The photo belonged to my uncle whose father (my grandfather) was in the Yorkshire Regiment. However, my grandfather does not appear in the picture so I do not want to automatically assume that these men were also in the Yorkshire Regiment. Thanks for any help.

Might be worth a close-up, but from a distance certainly looks the right shape for the Yorkshire regt (Green Howards)

Looks the right shape for the Green Howards to me as well.

Tall, thin cap badges... ...spurs ... ...breeches... ... lanyards... ...'03 belts... ...puttees fastening at the ankle... ..."mounted" stud pattern on the sole of the boots...

...11th Hussars

Or possibly Yorkshire Hussars? The belt's being worn are typical of Territorials pre-war, although no guarantee.

The close-up certainly makes it look like the Yorkshire Hussars (didn't realise their badge appeared so "tall" though when worn). Definately cavalry (or, at least, "mounted") though through all the other evidence.

Thanks all.

The Yorkshire Hussars is now begining to make sense. Having spoken to my father, he recalls his mother's brother (both from Yorkshire) was "in the cavalary" and I now suspect he is one of the men in the photograph.
