Hi madducks
Not too sure on this one I'm afraid. The pic is not quite clear enough for me to see. My first thought for the chap on the right is The King's Royal Rifle Corps, but I am not 100% certain. There are several badges of similar design including territorial regiments. The chap on the left I cannot see at all from this pic, is he the same chap as the other pic you have submitted? If so it does look like a different badge, not sure though.

White lanyard could be Artillery.

Dark lanyard perhaps engineers.

But it's best to work from documentary evidence.

Hi,
The soldier on the left is probably a driver in the Army Service Corp, cap badge is correct, Lanyard is correct, he is also wearing jodphurs with facings on the inner thighs.
One on the right is harder he could be KRRC as you think the cap badge looks correct, he is in the light infantry or rifles as he has black buttons.
