Not sure what this photo is of or which regiment.

Any ideas

Photo posted in two parts - it is one long photo

Corcam,

I can't make out the cap badge--hopefully some else can.

The scene are men from a mounted unit doing normal fatigue on their units horse line, i.e. shoveling horse S@#$ and many look like they have Curry Combs on their right hands to brush the horse down.

The two horses in the second pic. look more like draught animals than cavalry mounts to me. My guess would be either Artillery or Transport. It certainly looks like day to day work on the horse lines with a couple of officers just passing by in time to get their picture took. The cap badges ought to be the clue.

The cap badges ought to be the clue.

Thanks for all the help - this is the best I can do with the cap badges, not sure if that helps at all?

Could be Army Service Corps.

The blob on the left has that general shape and the draught horses fit that type of unit.

That would definately fit - most of the photos I have are from the ASC and involve horses but I wasn't sure this one was, mainly because most of them have names on the back and this one didn't.

Another piece to the puzzle seems to be fitting in place!!

Thanks

Corcam
