Protecting the Railways in the First World War

During the First World War John's great grandfather, Hebert Halsey, was involved in guarding the railway at Berkhamsted. He has provided a photograph of the 43rd Protection Company, possibly taken at Berkhamsted railway station.

Most of these men probably came from the Berkhamsted area. Tell me if you can identify any of them. [Larger picture]

Information on Protection Companies elsewhere in Hertfordshire will also be of interest.
