Default UNKNOWN PATCH T in wreath.

I have come across this WW1 cloth trade patch - T in wreath but cannot I.D. it.
Shown in Edwards & Langley, page126 in cloth and also shown in metal.
The nearest I can think is "Telegraphy" or "Tunneller" both which were Royal Engineer trades.
Can you help???

In the Canadian army, the T wreath badge was a generic trade badge worn after 1942. Depending on the time frame, it was worn for a specified group (plain T was C, T / wreath was B and crown, T, wreath was A group). Later the T badges represented a very confusing mix of trade groups and levels of skill within the group. In 1944 the T scheme returned to three groups. There was a Canadian issue of T trade badges, but many Canadians acquired and wore the British made T badges.
