    This would seem to represent part of B company going by the officers present.

    A close up of the piper in the above, reveals him to be a C/Sgt wearing a VLSGC medal.

    Here is a close up of the officers, the Sgt Maj? is wearing QSA KSA medals.
    The ORs wearing 4VBRH buckles which means this is 6th (Perthshire) (TF) rather than the 4th as stated on the photo.

    They appear to my eyes to be Lt J Haley/Hally and Captain TE Young.

    At home calling card from Maj Gen AB Ritchie commanding Highland Brigade group in Germany. Addressed to Mrs Marindin wife of Maj Gen AH Marindin, Hon Col 6/7th Black Watch, later chairman of Black Watch Museum. Think the date somewhere between 1923-27?
