Image of the Day - 8th June 2011

Today's image is another from my wife's family album. Like many of the photos, we know nothing of the identity of the subject.

It has some interesting features - the overseas service stripes are very clear on his sleeve, denoting he has served three years overseas.

It also appears that there is some kind of insignia on his shoulder - it appears to be a triangular cloth badge. Possibly a divisional insignia?

We can't see his cap badge, but I'm inclined to believe this man is in the Highland Light Infantry. My wife's grandfather served in the 10/11th Battalion of the HLI, and many of the subjects in the photo album are HLI men.

As per usual, if anyone has any information they could add, please get in touch with us, either by comment here, on our Facebook page, or by emailing us.
