Regiment indentification help please

Is anyone able to help identify the regiment/ranks of the men in this photo?

I believe the man with the moustache to be my great great uncle Frederick John Jupp. I found services records for a man with this name from the same town but there were some discrepancies. It gave a different address as 1911 census (could have moved I thought) but gave wrong parents' names.

I'm hoping to find out the regiment/rank of ...

Could this be the same person?

I'm looking for opinions of others on whether the two people shown here are, in fact, the same person.

The lady on the right has been positively identified as Mary Ann Lilley (1881-1931) who lived near New Milton, Hampshire.

The lady on the left is uncannily like members of the Lilley family, including my late father-in-law when he was young (he even said "she looks like me" when shown the photo before he died), and ...

This is my first post on the forum so forgive me if I haven't got it quite right.

Does anyone have any idea what date roughly this photo is taken? Or what kind of uniform the lady is wearing? Or anything else which may help identify the lady in it?

Thanks in advance

Is there anyway of identifying who the policeman is or any information about him from this photograph. The only thing known about him is that he was a relative of my grandfather, RFC Jones (born in London in 1897).

Any suggestions/ ideas would be greatly appreciated.

What era is this ?

I have found this photo in the family album but it has no indication as to who it might be.

This may help me identify who it might be.
