While Capt Tocher was RAMC, all of his "party" were members of the Newfoundland Regiment (the same as the regimental medical orderlies and stretcher bearers of every other battalion in the British Army).

The sergeant on the far right of the group is Sgt. Arthur Hammond (Regt #79).

I recall having seen (on-line) a copy of the photo that has (pencilled in either the margin or on the back) all the names. I thought that it was among some of the material in the Charles Sydney Frost Collection found at the Memorial University of Newfoundland archives. So far, going through the photo album and scrapbook #1, I haven't found it.

Jo, the Royal Newfoundland Regiment was not CEF. Newfoundland was a separate dominion of the British Empire. Feelings were so strong in the first year of the war that it was determined that the Newfoundland Regiment would serve with the imperial forces and not be associated with the Canadian Expeditionary Force in any way.

....I know Bill, the strong feelings were still going until 1949.....even then, some Newfoundlanders felt they got shafted in the deal to join the confederation.......

Jo, the Newfoundland Regiment was never part of or under the control of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. They were under command of the British Expeditionary Force; this is the term that should be used to designate them.
