Remembered Today:

Nick the cat

I bought this postcard, on the famous auction site, ages ago (because of the cat :w00t: ) but hadn't really looked at it until I stumbled across it today. Can anyone make out the details of the inscription? I think that I can see "O.C. Nick, & his pal Pde. [?] Sgt. A. Burrows, Sgt. Page.." but nothing much after that. Have I got the right end of the stick that "Nick" is the cat, and is the Officer Commanding?

Also, I can see that the men are Fusiliers of some kind, but any more details, plus suggestions as to the date of the image (just after the war? The chap seated left has a wound stripe) would be very welcome.

If the bugler was turned a bit more he is wearing shoulder titles.

Cheers Roger.

Many thanks for the suggestions so far - that really is the very clearest that I can get the image. Are they Grenadiers Guards, or was I right with a fusilier regiment? Any more ideas about any aspect of the card would be gratefully received.

Later thought: is the colour of the buglar's bugle-cords a clue?
