20th Hussars is my guess. Large H with a smaller X either side and a crown on top. If either I'd go with the one at the back.

Difficult to be sure. Both men appear to have a problem with a "lazy" right eye, and wear cap at same angle

Possibly the shadows in the group photo misleading, but the comparative mouths, fold between the bottom lip and chin, and the chins in Corisande's post dont compare well

 

Probably not going to help here, but I'd have gone with the trooper above the senior officer, between the R and E of READ? :ph34r:

Thankyou very much for your input  the picture below looks like he has a nasty scar under his eye but I cant trace his movements 'I know he returned home and then went back but I wasn'  sure if it was through injury? I've found that he was stationed n Colchester before the war' and I'm interested in what kind of things they would have done as a regiment being cavalry if anyone could shine a light on this that would be great regards Neil

Some of those soldiers look very under-age.
