A First World War Civilian/Military Liaison Committee in St Albans?

An interesting mixed group of civilians and soldiers photographed by Lea Latimer Christmas, who took a large number of First World War photographs. This one was taken after he had moved from Watford, to St Albans, so almost certainly dates from 1915 onwards.

I am wondering if it is some kind of liaison committee involving military representatives from several different units (at least four different cap badges), local civilian representatives (perhaps the city council?) and the identically dressed women may be secretaries.




Can you help by identifying the cap badges or the civilians  which may include some St Albans City Councillors?
