Peter Scott has been in contact about Pte Fenwick Styan of C Company; Fenwick's tunic has survived and I have posted pictures of the jacket in the photo gallery.
Peter is interested in learning more about Fenwick; Simon Payne has confirmed that Fenwick served on with C Battalion and then, after it reroled on Whippets, with 3rd Light Tank Battalion eventually being appointed as a lance corporal. I have also found, from his medal index card that he joined the MGC as late as 24 May 1916. He also know that he was not released until May 1919; and this was as a result of wounds or sickness.
Peter is particularly interested in a small loop fitting under one shoulder strap - could this have been for a lanyard?
