Photo Postcard - BEF WW1 - Coldstream Guards Regiment

Recommended Posts

A group of eight soldiers in the Coldstream Guards Regiment.  No writing on reverse.  A quick Wikipedia read reveals this regiment has a very long history.

If any of the British uniform experts could weigh in, I´d be curious to know if their uniforms and equipment offer any clues about a possible date range of when this photo was taken.  Any other insight would be appreciated as well.

Hope you all enjoy!

very nice pic. The caps were introduced 1905 & the shoulder straps in 1908, therefore after 08, probably 1914-16.
