    Why not post the same question amongst the photo collectors ??
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I guess the only photos around would be barracks or parade ones as the tornister was not worn in combat ( and that's where the Signal cameramen were - to photograph the 'glorious' victories of the TR ) Later on, in the various retreats, the tornister would still have been at rear echelon areas - that's probably why so many have survived ( that plus the practicality of needing a haversack in a post war situation that did not display any TR insignia )
