    "Silver badge men" were recipients of the Silver War Badge created in 1916 for men who had been honourably discharged from the services, usually after serious wounds; and the NFDDS&S was the National Federation of Discharged and Demobilised Soldiers & Sailors, a predecessor of the Royal British Legion. I think they are marching west along the Embankment in London, with Cleopatra's Needle in the background. The shot would have been taken from Hungerford Bridge.
