This is the fifth photo from Andy Gates (see pa 1159-1163). Probably taken before WWI when most people expected a brief war of rapid movement. The location is unknown. They may well all be members of the Suffolk Regiment. Basil Gates, the eldest of Thomas Gates’ children, is third from the left, marked with a cross.
