Wonderful image. When I see these reenactments, I always look at the ribbons that the folks are sporting. My grandfather was an "Old Contemptible" so I always check and usually we see "wilf, pip and squeak". This one is interesting and that ribbon on the left where the 1914-1915 Star would sit is unusual. I can't place it. Any thoughts? The cap badge looks like the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. Part of that regiment were in France in 1914 which adds to my fascination. Sorry - I'm distracting from the portrait of a fine gentleman!
