The soldier on the left has a 1902 pattern service dress uniform, and the 1914 pattern leather belt with the "s" snake buckle. This was issued starting in 1915 because they ran out of the webbing the other mans belt is made of. The soldier on the right has a strange tunic, notice the stand collar, pointed pocket flaps- with the Balmoral I was thinking some type of doublet worn by scottish regiments. You might want to try the Great War Forum to see if they can narrow it down-
