|A cigarette card c.1939, probably showing an Edwardian Border Regiment soldier's uniform I reckon?

In memory of
11th Border Regiment
Who died 1st July 1916.
|Here's an image from the booklet: A Short History of The Border Regiment.|
Very striking looking chaps and the same, well very similar too, the cigarette card.

|Note the soldiers on your card have "The King's crown" on their helmet plates - hence Edwardian/George V regalia, as dated 1914.
