A very careful look at the slouch hat badge worn in No.1 pic shows it as "ScH"; this definitely indicates Scottish Horse. I have such a (brass) title somewhere and will illustrate it later. As a matter of interest, the SH wore a black, cock's tail hackle behind the hat badge. As shown in your pic. A pity we will never know the names of your three subjects.

Now that I am home and can blow the badge up with my laptop I will have to agree it is Scottish Horse......
