    Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum.
    It’s easier to help with a bit more information. What was his name? Do you have his service number? Did he survive the war? That sort of thing.

    Hi

    If you are talking about the top badge it is the 8th Army shoulder patch - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eighth...United_Kingdom)
    The one above his Sergeant's stripes I am not sure about, but would denote some speciality skill.
    Googling may find it.

    regards
