3rd FOOT, BUFFS EAST KENT REGIMENT - 1st & 2nd V.B. - THE BAND
The name and the explanation are on the main site of the 3rd East Kent regiment; I phoned the guy and got extra information. However, tehre is a suspicion that the George Porter named on the cornet may be a now defunct music shop of that name...
There's a Henry Porter, drum maker in Aldershot from the 1800's. Maybe there's a family link?
