Ian

Just checked with a uniform expert on a Facebook Group and lance-sergeants wore three chevrons on their uniform. But, they did not wear a red sash as full sergeants were entitled too.

Still seems the picture was taken prior to his departure for SA.

If it was taken before he was deployed, then he may have anticipated promotion in the field and borrowed a sash!!

I will have to keep an open mind on this until I get more substantive information.
