Default West Yorkshire Broderick cap

Hi all,

A nice postcard from my brother's collection. Bandsboy Gibbons, York Volunteer Band Camp, Isle of Man dated July 14th 1905. Broderick cap with West Yorkshire cap badge presumably WM with 1VB or 2nd VB West Yorkshire scroll. I suggest WM as Volunteers. Musician arm badges. Looks like WM collars on Bandsboy far right and shoulder titles embroided 3 piece by the looks number over V over W Yorkshire I presume.

Nice to have it named and dated, if a member could see a A. E. Gibbons from St Helens in Lancashire on Ancestry be interested to see if he served with West Yorks in the Great War and if he survived, cheers Dean.
