    Default RAMC officer and two sergeants picture

    Picked this up today local to me. The officer in the middle appears to be a Lt. Colonel in the Royal Army Medical Corps and is apparently missing his left hand. The two sergeants with canes are both probably wounded and have an unusual twisted band on their caps. The one on the officers right is I think from the Welsh, though it could be any of the units that wore the Prince of Wales's feathers, such as the Pembrokeshire Yeomanry or the 3rd (Prince of Wales's) Dragoon Guards. The other is wearing a Light infantry or rifle regiment bugle badge, and could be King's Shroipshire Light Infantry, 6th battalion (Rifle) King's Liverpool regiment, Durham Light Infantry, Oxford & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry or the Nottinghamshire Yeomanry (Sherwood Rangers).

    I have been told on another forum that they are a recruiting party as signified by the 3 colour band on the caps.

    Indeed Ade, it was a new one for me as well. Also it seems that the one is Kings Shropshire Light Infantry, though still waiting for confirmation, if possible, that the other is the Welsh regiment.
