    Default WW1 Photograph help.

    Hi guys, i recently bought a lot from a house clearance, and with it was this photo,
    could anyone hazard a guess as to the regiment?

    It came with a victory medal, but as these things are often mixed up and sometimes contain brothers/uncles/cousins photos etc i am not convinced it is the same guy.

    could this be a west kent yeomanry uniform?

    I don't think the shoulder title is for them?

    I think Ade's right, here's a photo from a site showing the West Kent Territorial Yeomanry badge (the T is damaged) http://www.jsmilitaria.com/viewphoto...h=50817&phqu=2

    Its a WW1 period uniform also the title is possibly R WEST KENT see the long long trail some West Kent Yeomanry became RWK in 1917. Tjis is also the time when battle insignia began to be worn quite extensivelyhttp:
