Found it, with some help from a fellow enthusiast. It appears to be the 6th (City of Glasgow) Battalion HLI, whose pipers wore that style of sporran. Like the 9th, the 6th were also a kilted unit, but wore a Mackenzie kilt as opposed to the 9ths Government tartan. Interestingly the 6th seem to have worn an Atholl bonnet at the beginning of the war. The rather elderly piper in the photo suggests that the unit is probably second or third line, i.e. 2/6th or 3/6th.
