 48th Boys Brigade company membership cards from  1920-21, 1924-25, 1927-28, 1928-29

I was given these membership cards many years ago from Peggy Brownlie the wife of Bert. I was very fond of Peggy she was like an aunt to me. She was a church stalwart and spoke very fondly of 'her Bert'
This old photo was inside one of the membership cards I wonder if Bert is the photo ?  Taken I'd guess late 1920s
