Detail cropped from this photo.


This photograph appears to be post WW2 in that the cap ribbons show HMS.  Pre WW2 the Sailors would have the name of the ship on their cap ribbons.

The three badge sailor is an Able Rating likewise the two badge sailor.  The sailors appear to be the rear part of a drag rope team possibly pulling the bride and groom on a flower decked carriage.

Ths sailors are wearing the No 6 Tropical dress and white cap covers over black caps.
