My grandad had this photo amongst other family pictures, he knew exactly what the others were and who was in them, but he has no idea on this one, could anyone give any clues on where to look? I know its obviously a group of men in army uniform, and I do have a lot that were in the army, but Id love to be able to figure out who it matches to, I know it's not the best quality and it may be impossible to find anything from it, but I'd be grateful for any ideas

Looks to me like most of them are Warrant Officers - possibly WO Class 2, though that's a bit of a guess.

WO Class 2 can be several sorts of appointments, such as Company Sergeant Major (that's a job / appointment, not a rank). So it's not a small unit that's in the picture, as each of these guys would be responsible for their own small unit. Beyond that, I'm guessing.

Sorry - not very helpful in not explaining my logic. The WO insignia are the sort of round things on the lower arms of the battle dress uniform.

Browsing through the forum and saw this picture - bizarrely think the soldier second from right front row looks like my dad who was in Royal Artillery. Have checked photos of him (main difference is he's not smiling - always did!) and in my photos you can see the RA badge on the cap.
