Mystery Location and Date

Postby Gaill » Fri Aug 17, 2012 1:41 pm

My Aunt has this photo amongst her things but it's something of a mystery to us. The family lived in the South Derbyshire/Staffordshire area. Would anyone have any idea when this might have been taken or, indeed, what they might have been doing? The family were miners and shopkeepers so I'm stumped!

Wish i could see all the photo, Ancestry advert goes right through it. It could be a camp for WW1 where they went to train. Looks familiar to photos i have seen before. Hope this helps. :D

It's only a guess but it looks to me like an army photo. The men all look as though they are wearing jodhpur style trousers. That isn't to say that they necessarily rode horses....
I have little knowledge about forces uniform but the army is a possibility. Good luck!

WW1 royal artillery, they are wearing battledress trousers and long puttees. the one wearing a cap in center has a royal artillery cap badge.
