    thanks all !, I do like the photo, as its nicely framed will leave it as it is, not sure what battalion mirfield was, but as they are wearing KOYLI cap badges that would make them one of the west riding battalions 40-52 which were badged to the koyli, anyone know for sure ?, (the pic I found on the web site says it is the northorpe platoon)
    all the best,
    john.
