The Gower Brothers from Tring in the First World War

Could the children be "German Mascots"?
Grace recently provided five post card images relating to the Gower Brothers of Tring in the First World War. This picture from 1919, which almost certainly includes Benjamin Gower, intrigues me as the message on the back reads "Just a photo of the section with a few German Mascots" Are the "mascots" the children and could the section have been in Germany???

Click here to see all five post cards. Can you help identify any of the cap badges?
