Hello,

From Left to right-

first 2 are Lt or 2nd Lt. [The cuff has a single line of braid around it] Can't see how many 'pips' are on the cuff.

3rd Is a Captain [2 Lines of Braid around the cuff]

4th is a major [but could be a Lt.Col., but apears to have a single badge of rank on cuff ie, a Crown.]

Also Battery comanders were usually Majors, and this photo looks likely to be of a Battery.

Regards,

Stewart

can't see the next chaps rank badges, which are on his shoulder strapes. The last two are either 2nd Lt's or Lt's.

Thanks for that, had to reduce the photo a lot because of size limits, so it's lost a lot of detail. It is indeed a battery photo, 'A' 175 brigade.

Hello,

It's great that you know what Battery it is. Do you know the names of any of the officers? I see a few seem to have the medal ribbon of the MC.

Regards,

Unfortunately I can't put names to faces. I have the war diaries of the brigade, and although it does mention some of the officers, and their awards it doesn't mention which batteries they were with. It part of a photo of the N.C.O'S of the battery, of which my Granddad was a member.
