Can anyone identify or date this old Fraser wedding photo.
« on: Wednesday 13 May 20 15:37 BST (UK) »
This photo was in my GMother's (1883-1968) collection. It may be my GMother's younger sister's son but cannot be sure.
Her sister was Martha Clark who married a Donald Fraser in Glasgow, 1918. They later moved to Northern Ireland, Antrim.
Thought it might have been around the 2nd WW

I would say during the war as there are no medal ribbons. Lovely photo in good clean condition.

Thanks everyone, especially Japeflakes. Absolutely brilliant! Looks so much better in colour. Just wish I could confirm who they are.
Looks more like RAF than Army.

I initially thought it was RAF especially the one sitting but there is no eagle shoulder flash so that is out. There is also something on the epaulettes of the one standing which the RAF would not have.
