They look like Royal Fusiliers. The 1st Battalion, Royal Fusiliers were in Ireland during August, 1914 but were down south at Kinsale, Co Cork!

Putting a different question, are you sure it is Belfast ?

Can you identify the building that they are passing, which is very distinctive ?

Do you know the occasion? The corps of drums at least seem to have slung rifles.

No sorry. No other information. What would be the significance of the slung rifles. Could they be leaving Belfast to join other members of the batallion?

I don't know, but it did look a little unusual to me. It looks to me as if some at least of the men further down the column also have slung rifles.

I reckon Glen is correct with Donegall Square South as the street name in the photograph looks like Adelaide Street running south from City Hall.

A superb photo of the Corps of drums, and including what I take to be two tenor drums on the flanks, a little unusual but not unique. A very fine body of men, just look at the step, and the smartness of every uniform and boot..
