Does anyone know the unit these pair were members of?

Assuming you can't ask the guys to turn their shoulders round towards us a bit more. .... No, there is nothing to suggest a unit to me for the guy on the right. The badge on his upper arm is that of a trumpeter.
Both guys are mounted troops but as I said elsewhere that could mean Army Service Corps, Royal Engineers (?) or Artillery as well as cavalry and all the others I can't think of right now.

The guy on the left wears badges on his collar. Recognising badges at this small size is an art form. Not merely do you need a full list in a book or your head, you need to be able to recognise them at this size. I can't recognise them but someone on the Great War Forum might be able to. So far as I can see, the badges are the only possibility for recognition of the unit - and the two might not be in the same regiment or corps.
