Further to my last.

The process of printing a photographic image on tin was invented in the USA in 1856 and was introduced into the UK from the 1870’s but were much smaller than in the US. See for more details.

Personally I’m of the opinion the uniforms and sash look more American style and typical of many town, church or other organisations’ fife and drum bands, I recall seeing a photograph showing similar style uniforms on a web site showing historical pictures of Woodsmen of American organisation; each branch had their own uniform variation.

Try and identify the various insignia on the sash and cap badge, it should help.

Good luck
