Start again! Just purchased a photograph album of about 70 photographs showing the 120th  landing and advancing to KUT in 1915/1916 this album was compiled by H H Rich {later Major General Rich} i always wonder where these gems come from , the front of the album  also indicates an "A S Cane" may have taken some of the photographs but i can find no indication as to who he was, Rich went into captivity after the fall of KUT and the last photograph is of the officers quarters during captivity, a very interesting item you just never know what a photograph album is going to contain!!!

Dear barkalotloudy,

Interesting.

Here is a button, presumably Officer, for the 120 Rajputana Infantry.

The reverse says HOBSON & SONS. LEXINGTON ST. LONDON W.
