We'd like to find out more about the uniforms being worn in these two photographs from WW1 at Netley.
1. Appears to have RAMC cap badge, but why might the straps on his cap be arranged the way they are? We've not seen them like that in other photos. What is the significance of the rope cord (fourragere?) on the left shoulder? Is he carrying a swagger stick?
2. Appears to have British Red Cross Society cap badge. Again, what is the significance of the rope cord on the left shoulder? (And this is clearly different to the one worn by the man in the 1st photo.) It looks as though he has braided epaulettes, so what might this indicate about his rank?
