Hi there,
Can any one give me some information about these uniforms?
The gent on the right is my great grandfather-I think the one on the left is his twin.
Thankyou
Kate

Hi Kate

The man on the right is wearing the uniform of The Royal Marines.

The other man is in army uniform and is a lance corpral.

If you are pretty certain of the identities, you could check the records at The National Archives, documents online.

Royal Marine service records and army medal roll cards
Happy Hunting ;)
Peter
