Hi, Welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing the brilliant photos.
Take a look in the Gallery section where I have posted a large number of images which are photos taken/collected by 3596111 Pte. John Thomas Airey of Kendal during his service 1928-33 - he may well have known your grandfather who he might even be on one of Airey's group photos?!!
Is there anything written on your photos to say where they were taken? You might like to have a look at the "Inter Wars" and "Early years" sections where I have posted details and photos of several India locations where the regiment were based, e.g. Bareilly, Kohat, Multan, Rawlpindi. etc. Please show us any other photos and documents that you may have, Best Wishes, Paul.
