If your grandfather was TA, it's highly likely that he started his service with a RA Regt and then became attached to an infantry Regt as AA gunner. As manning numbers fell, they were transferred to that Regt.Thanks for the input chaps, made up with the responses. I hadn't come across the Green Howards cap badge before and I agree it could definitely be a possibility. I hadn't thought about the lanyard before but the comments about them stirred a memory and I've gone back and checked and found two other photos with lanyards of the chap I'm trying to trace (my grandfather). The first one is quite clearly a white lanyard suggesting RA, but the second one looks too dull to be white and could possibly be green which wouldn't rule out Green Howards.
