This is the clearest photo I have. The research I have dates from as far back as the 60s and states that the colour of the patch worn on the turned up brim of the slouch hat was white with green stripes to the centre, left and right hand sides.
The same research states that a green embroidered leek was worn by officers on a patch of regimental ribbon, but the leek worn on the other ranks' slouch hats looks to be metal and similar to the pattern of leek later worn as collars by the Officers from 1908 on.
