No problem, your badge was awarded to 54276 Pte Richard T Roberts of the Depot Battalion of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. He enlisted into the South Wales Borderers on 6th October 1914 as number 2451 (this number suggests that he was a member of a TF Battalion). He served overseas with the South Wales Borderers before transferring to The RWF. He was discharged as a result of illness on 3rd January 1917, no age is given.
Hope that helps !

next please !

PL
