TF good conduct badges

I have found an ACI of 1916 permitting TF soldiers to earn good conduct badges, and now seek photos of authentic, genuine, unmistakable TF soldiers wearing the inverted large chevron lower left arm.

This was an innovation as far as I can make out.

Please?

Dear Grumpy

My Grandad joined the 3 Bty, 267 (Cheshire) Bde, RFA, in 1914. Before this he was a dyed in the wool civilian. I have a photo of him, undated but later in the War, with unmistakably, a large inverted chevron (I am told it is in fact a Good Conduct Badge) on his lower left sleeve. Is this what you were interested in? If so let me know and then wait a bit as I try to figure out how to scan and send the picture. Stupid computers! @#%^$&!!!!!

Hi again

here is one of a lad in The Royal Sussex Regiment.

I believe but am not 100% that the battle patches are those of 4.R Sussex after they joined 101 Brigade, am willing to be corrected on this.
