I can obtain a photo of my father's cousin who was 2nd Lt Potts who is in that photo which I believe was taken at Heaton Park. I could probably identify him. Do you want to put names to faces.  if so would it be possible to have a copy of the photo so that I could ID him.

Jamie.

All the Bn. photos are taken directly from the book, "Manchester City Battalions Book of Honour", also available on CD.

Being printed on cheap paper their quality and clarity is not the greatest.

All were taken at Heaton Park early 1915.

Thanks for that Sphinx.   I've now located him on the Platoon 13 photo and compared them.  Looking at the officers photo Geoffrey Potts is on the back row third from the left as you look at the photo.  It's quite easy as he looks remarkably like my father.

Has anyone managed to identify Captain C L MacDonald?  I've searched high and low and can't find an image of him.
Following one Platoon and everything around them....
