Any idea of regiment and date, please
« on: Saturday 29 September 18 16:33 BST (UK) »
I'm hoping that some of you very knowledgeable people might be able to give me some useful information about the soldiers in the attached photo.

It was in amongst some family photos that came to me a while ago, but I'm only just looking at it again to see who it might be.  It is printed as a postcard and the only handwriting on the back says "To Tom, From Harry."  Unfortunately there were several Toms and a few Harrys in the family!  :-\

Can anyone tell me what regiment they might be, please, and dare I hope for a rough date?

Thanks

A Territorial Force (the plethora of shoulder titles) Fusilier Regiment (cap badge).  Not economy tunic therefore early.  Kit looks newish.  No wound stripes, no good conduct stripes, no rank stripes so earlier rather than later.  In UK during training?


Wonder where Dick was that day?

It is with great difficulty I share with you that in the early hours of 07 August 2021, Maximilian passed away unexpectedly but peacefully.

With deep sadness,

Good question  ;D

Thanks.  Really going to have to start thinking where it might have come from.
