Maybe not completely unknown!! Just compared it with another photo of my dad in his forces uniform I uploaded a while back, I'm pretty sure he's the one second from the right. In which case I think it's the T.A.
They don't look like British uniforms to me...
Ron, there's another photo on here that I posted a long while back of 3 soldiers, one I know is definitely my dad because we have the same photo of him on his own. I've compared the caps, look the same to me.
It's the two buttons on the forage caps which aren't British issue caps.
This is confusing Ron, because my dad's sister has confirmed the lad 2nd from the right is my dad and far left is his cousin, they were in the British army.
Got more information on this photo: from left to right Jack Kelly, Tommy Tomlinson, Harry Johnson, Pam (nickname) Higham. According to another aunty it was the Manchester regiment, she thinks the 5th - so Ron, definitely British!
Having checked on the Web I don't believe the issue of 2 buttons is not a indication that the caps are not British uniform. This site shows similar caps with 2 buttons http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showthread.php?t=20792.
