    The first thing I noticed was no unit badges. The next was overseas caps. Then only one set of stripes.

    I'm wondering if this may be a unit posted to Ireland in 1942? Right in the beginning...? Don't remember more...

    Yes, first on the right, rear row, second man in center, a couple down front rank. Seems to be more than the M1910.
