A wonderful group to find together, excuse my ignorance but what are the blue and yellow ribbons at the top of the photograph please?

Regards, Simon.

They are regimental colours but I don't know their purpose other than medallions and mounted brooch pins etc that I've seen for other regiments , both same sort of size one worse for wear than the other but too small for medallions.

Many thanks for that, tried a web search for the Regimental colours relating to the Unit but came up with to many references to identify exactly.

I'll bow to others with greater knowledge, but I'd say, as with the cap badges, the 1st Btn S/Ts pop up more than the 2nd & 3rds ?

Thank you for all your replies, thank you to Wilf Orasot for finding his mic and another thanks to Ben from fb who found his platoon and company along with an entry for 2/7/16 for admission to the 2/1 w Lancs field ambulance along with another 5 Warwickshire men and I take it there could have been more on the next page.
