Unfortunately he moved his arm at the point of exposure and so the badge’s image has blurred, but I’m fairly confident that it’s the Lewis Gun ‘skill-at-arms’ badge (rather than ‘trade’, which was a different classification).

I agree, he also wears an Imperial Service tablet which would indicate a territorial who volunteered for overseas service but had not up to this point been deployed on foreign shores.

Thank you both - yes I think that you are right, many thanks Mike. He was with the 1/6th Battalion - so yes a Territorial.
