    Picture taken at Ripon golf course July 1916.
    This would be the 4th/5th/6th/7th Reserve Bns, in September of that year the 4th absorbed all the others.
    Some men are wearing the three part shoulder title but I cannot read the number.
    I have four more of these pictures to post over the next few days.

    After posting this I notice that the trees are bare of leaves! so dont think the July date can be correct.
    Just checked back of card again, it reads February not July.

    The second image from this set.
    Taken on one of the 7 stone bridges on the river Skell at Studly park Fountains Abbey.
    Unfortunately the photographer forgot to fully wind on the film, the right hand side is another image.

    Brighton Pavillion used as an Indian wounded hospital 1914-16 and as a limbless British hospital 1916-19.
    The guard were recruited from ex veterans, cant find any reference for T/7/RH members being there.
