Five men in Military Uniform

Front of the Postcard

Thank you to June Scott for providing the postcard portrait below.

The photograph was probably taken in Edinburgh or Leith, but there is no studio name and  address printed on the back of the photo and no names of the people in the portrait.

I believe that at least one of the men may be from the Wood family as this was the source of the photo.

Back of the Postcard

The back of this postcard shows that:

-   it has not been sent through the post and

-   no photographer's name is printed on the card.

However the note in pencil is interesting.  It presumably shows the price for additional copies of this photograph:

-   Postcards:     2/6 (two shillings and sixpence = 12.5p) for 12

-   Whole plate:  1/6 (one shilling and sixpence = 7.5p) for 3

 

Question

If you can tell me which regiment these men are from, and/or approximately when this photograph might have been taken, please e-mail me.

Thank you.    -  Peter Stubbs:  October 16,  2006

Answer

Thank you to John Duncan for providing an opinion on this photo.  John has been helpful on several occasions in the past in identifying the regiments of soldiers.
