This military band marching past St Mary’s Church appear, from their cap badges, to belong to the North Staffordshire Regiment.  We know from letters written by Wivenhoe schoolboys at the time that men of the North Staffs were billeted in Wivenhoe for a while in and around July 1915, so it would seems possible that the photograph was taken then, although the way the onlookers are dressed suggests cooler weather.
