    Most certainly these gents are related Peter. The man in the center looks to be the boys (left side) father. I think they used everything in the photographer's closet.

    Wow that's a good one!

    The photo is small, so I can't see everything, but the piper in the middle and the Black Watch fellow on the right look legit to me. I don't see (from what I can see) any mix of regiments in the BW fellow.

    Pipers' kit is often quirky, but that piper's seems authentic. Note that the plaid is well-done and the waistbelt and crossbelt are worn with precision. I know I've seen that oval crossbelt buckle in the army before, but I can't remember what regiment.

    Even the fellow on the left, wearing his hat oddly, has the dicing on his hose and his flashes worn with military precision. It would be extremely rare for a civilian poser to have the dicing and flashes like that (dicing exactly centered, at the same height, the square not being overlapped by the spats, and leading edges of flashes at the exact center-point). How would a mere poser know to put together the correct sporran, kilt, hose, and hat? (See below.)

    Odd yes, but a quick look makes me lean towards soldiers.

    The lad on the left is wearing the uniform of 6 HLI.

    Assuming that they are genuine then the piper is presumably a Seaforth Highlander and the one on the right Black Watch.

    All guys look real soldiers, not posers...
    Left is definitely 6th HLI.
    Piper is probably from one of HLI territorial batts .
    The lad on the right can be a Glasgow Highlanders as well as a Black Watch...
