What is the origin of the photo? Is it a still from a film? if so which?

The captain and Major have a different cap badge to the Lieutenant, although the collar badges look he same. They are all wearing "Imperial Service" badges, which suggests that their unit is a Territorial infantry or Yeomanry regiment and they have volunteered for imperial rather than home service. This would make their regiment the 1/1 North Somerset Yeomanry. Like this chap
