Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me identify the uniforms shown in this picture and what service they belong to. I'm afraid the picture is a bit fuzzy so identifying the hat and lapel badges have been impossible for me to do. If the man on the right in this picture is who I think he is, then he was born in Scotland, and presumably still living in the United Kindgom in 1937. I believe therefore that these uniforms may be British, one of them Army? However, the lemon-squeezer hat was also worn by New Zealand troops as well. Any help with would be very much appreciated.

Cheers
Valmai

I can't identify the man on the left, but the other man is wearing type 2 or 3 ANZAC cap and collar badges. He has also received 'Pip, Squeak and Wilfred' (WWI service medals). My guess FWIW is New Zealander.
