Army Group

Army Group

This group of officers appears a fine body of men, perhaps the Yorkshire Regiment? Again the building behind is intriguing. Can anybody assist with names and possible regisment?

Ed Jones tells us: ”This is a group of officers. The battalion commander, a Lieutenant Colonel, is in the front centre.  They are not in combat and it is probably a training camp pre-war or in the early years of WW1.  It is hard to see the cap badge.  It resembles a Royal Engineers Capbadge, but they do not have the grenade collar badge.  The nearest guess is  the York and Lancaster Regiment, which features a lion and a rose (“cat & cabbage”) in a  laurel wreath.”

Obviously a fancy dress event. The large bootle held by the lady second from right would seem insufficient for a party of this size. Ware intrigued by the building behind them. Does anybody recognise where it might have been?

This lady certainly has her hands full. We presume the three pups? belong to the small terrier to the right. Whilst the cat appears to be totally disinterested. Help, please with names or even possibly the location.

Notice how the gentleman has removed his cap, a proper gent! Even the young ladies hat is a joy to behold. Possibly taken in a garden, the seating appears to be very basic. Assistance with names would be very welcome.

The same family again, but this time the dog is more alert. We do not know which came first (perhaps this one as the dog seems more interested. Perhaps it thought more was to occur and then was disappointed.
