Very nice original photograph of Warrant Officers, Staff Sergeants and Sergeants of the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards taken at Wellington Barracks, Chelsea in 1938 by the photographers, Gale & Polden Ltd.

This photograph shows the men in their full dress uniform and is still on it's original mount. This mount bears the image of the the Regiment's badge, the caption "Warrant Officers, Staff Sergeants and Sergeants, 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards - Welington Barracks, 1938" and is printed with a full list of the names of all the men depicted (including the Commanding Officer, Lt.-Col. Sir Oliver W.H. Leese, Bt.,D.S.O., the Colonel of the Regiment, Lt.,-Gen. Sir Alfred E. Codrington, G.C.V.O., K.C.B. and the famous RSM R Brittain). Photograph in good condition (a couple of minor marks which do not affect main image), some wear and tear to mount. Image dimensions : 290mm x 190mm. Overall dimensions (including mount) : 458mm x 331mm.

As a point of interest, this photograph was taken only a year before the 1st Battalion was deployed to France with the British Expeditionary Force (BEF).
