Here is a great website to research WWI has pictures of patches of Army Divisions.
http://freepages.military.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~worldwarone/WWI/index.html

There are two A patches and style script and color identifies what group belongs to.

The V if on the left sleeve, each one means 6 months of service. When worn on the right sleeve each stripe is a wound in action. So if George has one on left then he was in the service at least 6 months but under 12 months if only one.

Do internet searches of group and pictures. The NARA has an archives of photographs. WWI was the first war where there were a photography unit formed if memory serves.
