The sleeve badge looks to me to be the crossed sabres rather than rifles so he is not a marksman but a physical training instructor.

The cavalry also used the badge as a qualification but I can't see any spurs or anything else cavalry-wise on him.

Hello Alan

That does seem more likely as both my uncle and mother said he was a PTI and only just made it as he was on the limit of height. The RAPTI has a crown over the sabres but the photo isn't clear enough to tell the difference between the badges. I am now even more confused but tend to lean towards the PTI.

Thankyou

The cap and shoulder badges used by the PT Corps had a crown whilst the crownless version is correct for a trade badge that was worn on the arm.
