Default Shoulder Title ID, Please

Probably a silly question, and will no doubt be patently obvious to many, but what is the upper section of this RF shoulder title, please (ringed in red)?

Looks like the number '12' but not sure.

With thanks,

Peter

Hi Peter,

I know that it's easy to miss something in Westlake but I couldn't see a RF Grenade title other than the first two parts you are showing, what the top piece is, I have no idea ??

So, not patently obvious, not to me anyway ??

Dave.

Thanks for looking though, Dave. Appreciate your input as always, mate.

Cheers,

Hi Peter,

There was a 4/V/grenade/RF, prior to 1908 but I don't know if that was 4 over V or 4 alongside V but either way that wouldn't suit your photo ?? and I think they were in white metal ??

Dave.
