Charles Robson and Billie Gibbin

What we know about this image :

A photograph of Charles Robson and Billie Gibbin (unfortunately we are not sure which is which), who were both killed during the war. Charles (Charlie), was killed on 2 October 1918, age 21 and 10 months, and is buried in Lijssenthoek Cemetery. He was the son of Charles & Betsy Robson (nee Holmes). Billie Gibbin was probably only 15 years old when he signed-up, but was killed on December 16th, 1915 just a couple of months before his 16th birthday. Their service numbers are consecutive so presumably they signed up in a Pals regiment together.
