RFC/RAF Aircrew Group 1918 Identifaction

Well, we have a group of Pilots, and Observers, in the UK.
Happy smiling, Apart from one and shoes polished.

During the summer. Windows open and grass green.
4x4 pane windows, the lower 4 panes mottled.

Standing 1? ,2?, 3 (Lt./ Capt.) S.P Ball, 4?(observer) see F4362 post.

, Kneeling 5? Lt. in RAF with two Very pistols.

Any help with names, date, location.

Facial recognition, is not my forte, but No.2 Is interesting.

Thanks for any assistance.

OK, This may be 90 Squadron summer 1918, at RAF Brockworth.

The building in the background being at a UK Training Depot Station.
Flight Group Commanders Office, three of which were provided at each TDS built with the 1918 pattern 15-bay GS shed - which is the building shown in the background.

Apparently, a few Canadian pilots were being trained up at 90 Squadron, before being broken up.

another photo, mixed bunch RFC x 3 and RAF x 6. about the same time.
