At first glance this private of the 1st Battalion, The Cheshire Regiment appears to be wearing Masonic regalia but
in fact he is a member of the International Order of Good Templars - a temperance society. He wears two
temperance medals that along with the vest-like sash were not authorized for wear - as was any fraternal regalia -
and would have been taken off as soon as the photographic session was completed.
