Most of these men were from the Dornoch area. I recognise my father Davy Murray back right, John Anderson Davochfin centre (battledress no headgear), Leonard Will front right (no headgear). As I understand it because there were so many on basic training at Barry Buddon some were billeted at Mathers Hotel Dundee at the time, a temperence establishment, wonder why they were all smiling?

Thank you for sharing this photo, I do not know much about my grandfather, Leonard Will, so I am very delighted to come across a photo!

Many thanks for your comment, I'm glad that you have found this photo of your grandfather. If you search on his name you will find several more references to him on the image library - Administrator.
