Navy & Army Canteen Board

A bit of a longshot but I am after a copy of ACI 9 of 1919 which details the work of the Board.

Anyone got a copy please?

Nice picture to sweeten the request.

Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry?

Not having a wide knowledge of cap badges can anyone confirm that the badge in the black beret is that of an officer in the Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry?

Thanks,
