Default T/RE Shoulder title

Interested in getting some information on this shoulder title. I was told it was worn by a Balloon Company of the Territorial Force of the Royal Engineers. Is that correct? I am an Aviation collector and have been looking for badges related to the early days of British Aviation, such as the T/RFC/Hants title. I snagged this one, and was hoping the information I was given was correct!
