a group photo of junior officers and NCOs (a company?) suggests perhaps 11th? London (perhaps 3/11th? Attached File  2lt 12 Londons.jpg   7.45KB   4 downloadson the basis of a very faint pencil text) - I note some officers have a curious lapel badge - the best scans suggest possibly a 'XI'. An example posted here. does anyone know of this. I have seen one image of an offcier of 3/11th in Egypt with some kind of lapel badge. any suggestions welcome

Spot on, 11th County of London (Finsbury Rifles) wearing a bugle cord boss and XI collars. Any chance of a complete photo please?

Thanks.

thanks for that - here is the image - if you can confirm whether this is 2/11th or 3/11th that would be good. I was wondering if the Sgtmajor was Jackman.s should be possible to ID most of the men
