      Hi,

      My father used to speak of the Tom Birkett in this photo (also in formal photo of Training Battalion Drums)

      They served together in 3rd CG in Egypt & Palestine pre war. Tom Birkett was, like my father, born in Cumberland and IIRC also ex Border Regiment TA. He wrote several pieces of flute/drum music that are often heard at Trooping the Colour.

      Thanks for posting. Heard so much about him from my Dad but it’s the first time I’ve seen a photo of him.

      Regards

      Steve

      EDIT TO ADD

      Curiosity got the better of me.....he joined 4 months before my father.
