Hull early 1900's

Just been shown this pic of Hull. It looks like a green Howard soldier. Definitely Hull City police. And a soldier, not sure of his dark coloured trousers.
The soldier on the left seems to wearing scarlet tunic but seem to be plain cuffs or are they military pointed cuffs on them in scarlet?
With the shoulder straps trimmed in piping that gives it 1902 to 1913. The karky cap of the soldier seems to be a 1905 pattern which would still be in use past 1913.but if I am right the date of the photo must be between 1905 to 1913.
anyone any more info they can work out.

The three men all have similar gangly frames and thin faces - are the 2 on the left, and possibly all 3, brothers?

They do have similar features. I believe they may be. Was trying to date it as close as possible. I think it is between 1905 to 1913. Hoping some others with a more expert eye can assist in th date.
