Officers of the Second Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment, photographed in October 1914.
This photograph hangs in the Outpost Office of the 2nd Battalion Yorkshire Regiment (the Green Howards) in Trnity Church, Richmond. The names of the Officers, and what became of them during the First World War, is shown beneath the photo. Details of each Officer, together with an individual photo, can be found on the individual photos pages.
One thing that is remarkable about this photo is that of the 26 Officers photographed in October 1914, 10 were dead by the end of the year, 3 more were killed subsequently, 10 were wounded and / or taken prisoner, and only 3 appear to have survived the War unscathed.
