Sure.

Badges on Welsh Guards officers OSD caps are much smaller than on the forage cap, maybe you are used to seeing only the latter.

I would date that photo to very late WW1, or just post war. Note only one has a ribbon bar, which I am thinking is the MC, the war ribbons (pip, squeak and Wilfred) not being worn yet. The style of plus fours and service dress cap variation, along with the general appearance(different shades of shirt) is still more of that period, and the very small OSD cap badge, smaller yet than the familiar later OSD size, is also indicative of that period to my knowledge. They are very rare to fine nowadays.

CB, thank you for your insightful commentary

I was was thinking early interwars. The very small badge must Indeed be hard to find.

The photo will presumably date from between the end of 1917 until 1922 as the officer on the left is wearing an overseas service chevron.
