    Hi Adam,

    For info, the units that I can work out, going clockwise-ish from top left, are:

    Nevard: 1st West Kent Yeomanry Royal Artillery
    ?name: 5th Royal West Kent Regt
    Kirby: Royal Horse Artillery
    G. Morrell: 3rd Regt Royal Horse Artillery
    Jones: ?regt
    Murray: 74th Regt Royal Artillery
    ?name, Bombardier: 25 Field Regiment Royal Artillery
    Seymour: 239 Battery Royal Horse Artillery
    ?MacKay: 6th Btn BlackWatch
    Costar: Coldstream Guards
    ?name: (?)7th Btn Green Howards
    ?Sparrow: (?)54 Battery East Yorkshire Regiment
    Grenadier Guards
    W. Greig: 5th Btn BlackWatch; Royal Highland Regt
    (?)Moorman: Royal Engineers
    George S.C: Royal Gloucestershire Hussars
    (?)Bennet, Bombadier: Royal Artillery
    (?)Burrow: ?Regiment
    (?)Freeman: 5th Btn Royal Sussex Regt

    As an aside, quite a few of these units are artillery units, (specifically anti-tank) and also "war-service" regiments or infantry regiments converted/retrained to the artillery role.

    Hope that this is of some help Adam

    Regards etc
