    Interesting picture
    Quite a mix of uniforms,Many of the officers have the old style (1908 pattern ?) sleeve cuff pips.
    Many others have the short lived 'Crowned Eagle' metal cuff officers badge.
    Some appear to have the also short lived Gilt vertical bar type rank Bars on their Cap Bands (either side of cap badge).
    So perhaps the picture was taken some time mid to late 1918,although I guess it could be even into 1919,it was a slow changeover to the RAF uniform we are familiar with and the transition period was quite complicated, still some old regimental uniforms/caps being worn by some.

    The Officer with the 'tache front rank centre does bear a resemblance to Major Guy Garrod (later AM Sir Guy Garrod) - he was OC 13 sqn in 1917 - so not sure if it is him as the picture probably taken later than that - unless it was taken during a later visit to the sqn.
