Might cut it down a bit.

Assuming it's King's Own, the 6th Bn (38 Bde, 13 Div) was at Aldershot Feby - July 1915, and the 8th (76 Bde, 25 Divn) in May - Sept 15. The 11th (120 bde, 40 Div) also, Aug 15 to early 16. The last-named was a Bantam Bn, so do you think the blokes look short enough?

Thinking about it, Alan, if you find his medal card and date he went overseas, we can probably identify the Bn, as they proceeded to France at different times.
