I found this original photo in a small town junk shop.It is of a group of Royal Norfolk Regiment servicemen.But what sort of time frame?I can see 08 pattern belts and they appear to be somewhere hot too.And what ribbons does the officer on the far right have(if you can see them..)Any help would be great.

I would say it is pre 1935, as the regiment became Royal in that year and the cap badge changed. They are wearing 1922 pattern SD caps which also helps date it roughly as somewhere between the mid 20s and the mid 30s. They are wearing KD too so are serving overseas, which will help date it possibly. I know one battalion (can't remember which!) went to India in the early 30s, so it could be that one.

I'm sure there is someone on here with a better knowledge of the Norfolk regiment in the inter-war period that will give you a more accurate answer!
