That did make me smile as early on in my research I mistook a Sawyer for a Lawyer too. So you are not the only numpty in the class  : ;D

Would love to know the year of this photograph of my Great Uncles who were plumbers. Also could some give the photo a touch up, please. 
Thank you

I have made a mistake sending this message.

I, and I believe others have ignored this one as It appeared that Cupcake had changed her mind  ???

I'm sure K.Garrad would be able to help with this one. I have sent him a message to ask him to take a look for you.

My suggestion would 1880s and possibly into the 1890s.

My favourite euphemism for bastardy is "born the wrong side of the blanket."

"Base Born"....I thought it meant born at a military camp  ;D ;D It me some years to realise what this meant.

Hi grub,
Is it possible to scan this at a higher resolution - say 300dpi or even 600dpi. You will get far better results for a restoration.

Cheers,
Di

I'm guessing that this is a copy and that the poster doesn't have the original.

Armed Forces / Re: Help With Military Group Photo Please

Have to wait for Jim 1 to pass your way, but I think it must be post WWI but not by much. Officers rank badges were on slash cuffs at end of sleeves in WWI. The officer has plain sleeves.

This is not accurate as officers started wearing rank on the shoulders during the war.  Many also wore ORs tunics and trousers to avoid being picked off as an officer.

The style of hats suggest 1916 onwards whilst the absence of any medal ribbons suggest pre 1919.

Thanks you Alan for your helpful response, it's much appreciated.
