    Magazine clipping from 1910.
    The Pagent was held in Fulham Palace on 20th June, to raise funds for the Soldiers and Sailors Help Society.
    1st Bn were in Ireland at this time so perhaps these men are from the depot at Perth?

    Full length portrait of an unidentified officer in levee dress circa 1900?
    Large size collar badges, Victorian crowns on SBP and WBC.
    There is a signature in pencil on the mount that i cant decipher? Also the mount is blind stamped with the logo of Lafayette Galleries the Royal photographers.

    Ron,

    A nice photo, again it's the 6th! they do seem to dominate in the leftovers of what exists for the terrier battalions.

    Woodhead is in Ayrshire and the camp was nearly 4 miles south east of Kilmarnock.
    The exercise took the form of a sham fight against a force "landing at Troon" that moved inland to take Glasgow.

    Derek.

    Not sure when the high collar tunics went out of use, or when the Ts were introduced.
    This is almost certainly Captain Adam Malcolm of the 5th Bn and 2nd/5th Bn. (check out his ears)
    He joined the volunteers in 1895.

    He features in your post #215 in the back row third from left.

    Small RH title and an English style tunic.
    Looks not unlike 1167 CSM J. Dargie of B coy of the 1st Bn.
    This was taken in October, 1915.
