My first efforts at retouching some old photos are these of the hockey and football teams of the 2nd Battalion North Staffordshire's band.  As my grandfather is in the football team and was assigned to the band in 1916 (previously a Private in D Company) I think this dates these photos to 1916-1918.  A pity the goalkeeper has ghosted so badly.

 

As they remained in India for the duration I wonder how they felt about missing out on action?
