Studio portrait of four unidentified First World War soldiers. Two soldiers are wearing Company Sergeant Major rank insignia (three bar chevron, points down, surmounted by a crown), and two are wearing Sergeant Major Bandmaster rank insignia (four bar chevron, points up, surmounted by a crown). According to http://www.canadiansoldiers.com/ranks/staffsergeant.htm, these insignia were used in the Canadian Army from 1900 to May, 1915.
The name "Bloye" is written on the storage envelope. The only person with the surname Bloye in Library and Archives Canada's database of First World War soldiers's attestation papers and service files is Frederick Arthur Bloye, 320851, enlisted at Toronto, Ontario, January 27, 1916: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/first-world-war-1914-1918-cef/Pages/item.aspx?IdNumber=49539.
The name "Bloye" on the storage envelope for this negative may be a misspelling for "Boyle", and if so, one of the soldiers shown may be John Alexander Boyle, 189648, enlisted at St. Thomas, Ontario, December 13, 1915, assigned to the 91st Battalion, and listed among the memebers of the 91st Battalion who deployed from St. Thomas on June 25, 1916: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/first-world-war-1914-1918-cef/Pages/item.aspx?IdNumber=59199.
