107SIT – Machine Gun section – 9th Middlesex, Sittingbourne 1914

We have been unable to provide a location for this photograph of the troops, who seem to be drawn up for inspection. We have placed at Gore Court Park as we know that this was a training base for the Army.

New information below courtesy of Alan Anstee:

‘The 9th Middlesex were in Sittingbourne with the Middlesex Infantry Brigade, part of the Home Counties Division in September 1914. The cap badges visible are the right shape for this regiment and the long Lee-Enfields used indicate that it is a Territorial unit.’
