Inscribed on the back," RAC Depot Poona, self, Henry and Charles". I wonder who Henry and Charles were and their rank?

      "Charles" on the right was Lt.Charles Trevor Vesey Fitzherbert, an Anglo Argentine Officer like my father.Charles was in the 3rd Carabiniers (Prince of Wales's Dragoon Guards),a cadre of which formed the 25th Dragoons, who died on the 13th April 1944 in the Battle of Nunshigum, leading No.4 Troop "B" Squadron,(its Officer commanding having been killed) in an attempt to take Nunshigum on the India Burma border.He is buried in the Imphal Cemetery, India.

      I think that "Henry" in the middle of the photo next to my father at left was the elder Brother of Lt. Charles Fitzherbert. He was Beresford Ivo Fitzherbert,He gained the rank of Captain in the service of the Probyn's Horse (Indian Armoured Corps) during WWII.They were all great friends.
