If I was asked to date the photo then I would say that it was 1917-18 as there is a 1915 pattern tunic so its after 1915 and the cloth shoulder titles suggest 1917 onwards.

Although they were born in London and that is the right recruiting area for either the KRRC or London Regiment they are not wearing ASC, RA or RDF badges. It was not unusual to change regiments when sent as reinforcements to other regiment or often to the Labour Corps after medical downgrading if wounded.

However looking at their ages it is not impossible that they joined the London Regt but were transferred to the ASC before going to France.
