I would say it has the correct ingredients to indeed be one - I have another photo with older men and the younger men in the family, including Paddy above, and they have drums too - however, that wasn't Military, it was civvy street, Glasgow style lol

Good evening,

We know this is not RA by the cap badge. I would also discount Scottish as well, wrong jackets and no dicing on hats.

I would also say no to them all being under 21, there is at least one with a medal. Right of bass drum as we look at it, and those to his left, right as we look, are all older. There are others in there who look older as well.

Territorial force is an option as well, on summer camp. Could also be pre or post war, post war would be my option of choice.

Lastly, the dog is a black lab, wolfhounds have feathered feet and muzzle.

The regimental band could be in the Cameronians:

In the link above scroll down to see photo of "The band of the 7th battalion the Cameronians in Glasgow Green during a recruiting march in 1915"

The glengarry and cap badge look similar.

Thank you John915, I did think some looked older and you could be on to something there Tonepad - they do look very similar!
