Default WW1 Royal Welsh Fusiliers Shoulder Titles - help needed

Hi All,

I've been asked to frame up a relative's medals and badges and was looking for a bit of advice.

These are his original badges but they are missing one of the T's.

I know he was in the 4th battalion, are there some number 4's missing as well or did they not wear them?

Thanks for the help,

Michael

Michael.

Yes there are T 4 RWF titles, have seen seperate four part s/t so agree you are missing a 4, do have both brass and w/m (as per image).

That is a sans-serif T, not usual for S/Ts. Regards, Paul.

Ok, as I say they are all his original badges that were passed down with his medals, if it's not a shoulder title is there anything else it could be?

Could he have worn just the grenade and rwf letters? I can understand a single T going missing over time but both number 4's seems a bit odd.

Thanks for the help,

Michael

Hello Michael-I have no knowledge on TF RWF- perhaps it was used-I can only say most TF Ts are not like that. Regards, Paul.

Ok Paul, thanks for the help.

I did buy a single T at the weekend and was told by the dealer they were either large or small. I took a gamble on the large and when I got it home saw that it wasn't even close, as you said the font of mine is completely different.

I'll keep digging.

Michael

That's interesting, so it may be from his great coat, it does seem to match the one in the photo
