A Fine body of Troops !

A fine body of troops. We believe the photograph was taken in 1940. Do you know who any of the soldiers may have been? Were they celebrating an important event with this photo? Were they going somewhere? Are they regular troops or The Home Guard?

The large building in the background was used as a cinema. The wooden addition was the projection room.
