Alan Fraser My uncle Reynold Fraser (1892-1971) is first on right behind the sergeant major. He was wounded in France in June 1915, and sent back to England to recover. He then spent time in Norfolk building invasion defences before being sent back to France to serve with an anti-aircraft searchlight company.

Graham Troillet Alan, there is no warrant officer (Sergeant Major) in this photo. The man at the front is a commissioned officer, by the looks of it a Lieutenant.
