Army uniform to identify


Valued Member
Here are two pictures of the J W Holmes, James William Holmes my Great grandfather born 1878

Can any one identify the uniform? Note the two arm bands and the five point star on right lower sleeve. I cannot make out the epaulette mark or hat badge

I know from the burnt records he was a telegrapher in the territorial support from 1909-1913 on a fixed 4 year term.I assume he rejoined the regulars at the begining of WW1 but cannot trace any other records so presume they were lost.

any suggestions gratefully received
