Carte Postale sent by "Alec -  to Mrs F. Glendenning, Wrottesley Rd, Harlesden, London NW"  11/8/1916. Can anyone identify the cap badge of these riflemen please;  any suggestions for the man rear centre welcomed.

I think they are new recruits without badges so at least three have rifles black button's as badges.

Man rear Centre could well be KOYLI

I agree with Michelle that man rear centre could be KOYLI.

 

I would hesitate to support the idea that they are new recruits. I'd like to see a close up of what bigjohn identifies as black buttons as cap badges. I doubt the corporal was a new recruit

By new recruits I meant fresh postings into a regiment with a shortage of badges available. This use of buttons as badges was quite common in the early years of the war.

The rest look like GS buttons, but the older man with the grey hair and tache  looks KOYLI to me

battle of loos

good evening,

 

very interesting photo by the uniforms, Cape badge & weapon

 

for this, I think :

 

the Queen's - North Staffordshire -  Lincolnshire

Yorkshire Regt - East Lancashire - Ox & Buck - Loyal North Lancashire - Yorkshire Light Infantry - Durham Light Infantry -

for the button on the cap, I think for the "General Service" button.

I already found on the field of the Loos, somes "General Service "  buttons painted in black.

 

for me, these men are not rifflemen.

because :

the big button are in black & the little button for the chinstrap are in shiny copper.
