I am sure you are right and the unit is 9th Royal Sussex. The rectangle was yellow and the small diamond above was a company i/d. These company i/d patches worn by units in the 24th Division above their battalion signs were sometimes cut as diamonds and sometimes as four-pointed stars. The colouring remains the same throughout :

A company - blue

B company - green

C company - red

D company - yellow
