My grandfather was in the 4th 'City of Dundee', and then
the 4/5 battalion.
He was in the 4th territorials before the war started.
The 4th arrived in France, Le Havre, on the 26th Feb 1915.
The 4th and 5th were amalgamated on the 15th March 1916,
to form the 4/5.
He was then discharged on the 8th May 1916.
Discharged due to ' end of period of engagement, because he was a territorial !
This loophole was closed shortly after with the introduction of general conscription.

My grandfather is seated on the left, would anybody be able
to help me identify the person standing on the right ?
Why have they got different hats on their heads ?
