I'm still confused by the "Blue" "Blues" "Patrol" "Patrols" uniforms.

This previous thread seems to point to pocket pleats being earlier than the 1930s or after 1949?

Thanks btns

Looking on a silver markings site there is mention of 1909 as the date that Tiptaft went into partnership with his son, is it possible that was the date the back mark changed?

I bought this picture in South Molton last week, I suspect they are wearing the Bandsman Lyre badge on their sleeves but it doesn't look quite right?
