Good question! I think there are three possibilities. 1. WW1 badges 2. Regimental badges with armband if they came from another unit 3.Temporary Staff badges with armband. I have not come across a photo yet either to confirm or disprove anything. My thinking is if any WW1 badges were in the stores they may have been used. If men were posted to the units from the territorials or from another corps they may just have been given armlets for identification as provost and kept whatever they wore before. NZTS may be an option as I've seen a photo of an officer at one of three POW camps wearing the NZTS fernleaf badges.
