Default Highland Light Infantry circa 1920

One of these soldiers appears to be wearing Great War medal ribbons so the photograph must be 1919 - 1920 at the earliest.

You are most likely correct regarding the time period of this photo.
Some of those TOS look a bit continental...

There is no information as to where the photograph was taken, i.e. no photographer's name and address. Possibly a Remembrance Day parade, or a return home after overseas service.

Is the Colour Bearer wearing a glengarry rather than a tam?

One of the men (immediately to the right of the officer) is wearing a wound stripe, didn't those cease to be worn in 1922?

I wasn't sure about him, thought they might be blemishes.
