Hi Raven,

From the number of medal ribbons on the officers and senior ncos I would say we are looking at 1919 as by now they had been issued the Victory abd Defence medals a number of them look like Boer War medal holders as well.

The place to start is to see if you can get an ID on an officer as I can see an MC there.

If you know your Grandfathers service record you will be able to find out where he was serving in 1919 and work it from there.

All the best,

Rob

Wouldn't the photo be a bit earlier. I cant see any overseas service chevrons which were enitiled to be worn after January 1918? I would have expected some amongst the men if it was 1919
