Dear Friends

Would somebody be able to identify this soldier's regiment from a very poor photograph?

Many thanks for any help with this

regards

Can you enlarge the badge at all?

It looks to me as if he is wearing a GS button as a badge, which will not be a lot of help in finding out his unit. :(

This man is serving with a Training Reserve battalion. Men in these units wore General Service buttons as cap badges as they as yet had not be sent to a Regiment.

It may be a trick of the camera, but it looks a little like an 8 pointed star around the badge? That would make Middlesex Yeomanry a possibility? Phil B

Most of them did Paul.

In the case of my distant kinsman, Sid Newman, they all wore the same cap badge of one of the instructors.

Not sure if he made them do it, or if they wanted a proper badge rather than a button?
