Hi Simon,

 

Its the sign for a Divisional Ammunition Column(DAC) worn by Royal Artillery and ASC soldiers. the stiched X might denote 10th(Irish) Division DAC.

 

A super badge to inherit

 

Regards

Might be a symbol for an ASC Company he was with.

If you know which companies he served with, there are some  surviving records of ASC Company insignia.

Company insignia were I think unofficial.

 

Here are some examples:

Note that 9 SBAC was a light coloured saltire on a dark background.

The ANZACs had a similar system, they have a good website, which shows some DSC bages as Red Shell shapes at:
