Hello 'birchp',

They are likely to be War Service Chevrons, Red for 1914 and Blue for each of the years 1915,1916,1917 and 1918.

many thanks Ron, May I ask would these be transferable as he was also in the 11th Hussars?

Hello Paul,

Sorry for the delay, only just seen your last post.

Yes they would be awarded for each year spent abroad irrespective of which unit he was serving with.

Ron
