Yes it was the group photo where they are all wearing the NW Europe standard uniform rather than khaki drill as in the pair.

Noted too that the group photo uniforms do not include the RA lanyard so as Agra (India) is on the smaller pic (right uniform this time) we have a UK group and a pair in India.  Regiment unknown.

There is another date clue to add to T1's thoughts.  Some of the group are wearing the tunic with manufactured open lapels (introduced 1949 I believe) which replaced the lapels pressed open which are also evident.
