    Difficult to see but Brevet Colonel MacDonald is nearest the camera 3 back of the column with 7 medals. I have the original of this.

    My late father served 5th Border May 1935 until he enlisted in Regular Army in Jan 1937. I recall him mentioning attending his only summer TA camp in IOM - so likely 1936 unless further camps were held there pre 1940?

    I’ll have to check his Attestation papers to see if they are signed by your grandfather:)

    He was street lining in London with Coldstream Guards 12th May 1937.
