Hello Frank,

Sorry to disappoint but my recollection was in error. What I had in fact was a RPPC of a chap with the regimental arm badge showing on his right arm. I've also shown a photo of a reproduction I have of this badge. However what I did note whilst checking my records is that Bryn Owen states in his book that he thought it unlikely that these were worn after amalgamation to form the 25th Batt'n RWF. This photo can put that one to bed as you can clearly see his RWF shoulder title.

Perhaps more importantly I noted that Bryn disagreed with D. G. Glover in his article for MHS where Glover stated that Sergeants wore the regimental badge above their chevrons. Bryn advising that he had never seen this in photographs he had examined. Again we can put that one to bed as well. As shown in the last photo one of the sergeants is clearly wearing the standard pattern badge above his chevrons.
