Camp photo - Territorial Army Camp before World War 2 began

Originally depicted by Dad as B company, 6th Green Howards, but now this photo is believed to be 1st East Lancs, Circa Feb 1945, location possibly Germany. Identified through the clothing and medals being worn.

(Previous description was "Our first Territorial camp in 1939 at Marton, Bridlington, before the war started. Sorry I am not on it as I could only stay one week because I had to get back to the shop. Most of these would be killed or captured at Gazala, by Rommel, when he chased our army back and surrounded the battalions. In fact, up to the time of Alamein, 700 men were to be killed or captured - this number out of 950)."
