I knew JB as PWRR, and being an ex Donkey Walloper/Scaley would have thought the distinction was silver tapes for L/Sgt & gold for Sgt! We didn't really go in for sashes in the Units with which I served.
I believe that the White Vs Gold chevron difference only features on Full Dress uniforms (i.e. Scarlet tunics). The No.2 Dress, specified for Remembrance ceremonies, use the same white on khaki felt for both.

There's very little about it on the web but here's a photo from The Gentlemen's Military Interest Club;
