Good point, that was in my head telling me not to type it! Amended.

Just aquired this large mounted photograph. Struggling to identify the P.T.Is Regiment. Those on the course the appear to be a mix, I note how nearly everyman has a totally different trouser belt on.

I think either Essex or Dorsetshire Regiment, Toby, with the former being the most likely going by the cloth shoulder title.

The lowermost clasp looks reminiscent of Boy Scouts, Church Lads Brigade, or similar.

Some very early striped ‘stable belts’ (as we know them now) on view too.

Thank you, I will happily go with the Essex, quite convinced it is a short title ending in X and the flat part of the scroll of the Essex badge matches.

Yes, I too thought that the flat part at the base of the badge matched.
