Question Solid T/RE/LANCASHIRE shoulder title

I have recently bought this T/RE/LANCASHIRE shoulder title with a solid "LANCASHIRE". the T/RE/E. LANCASHIRE shown in Ray Westlake's book also has the word "LANCASHIRE" solid.

Does anyone know why this solid title seems peculiar to Lancashire?

Thanks for looking.

Rob

It was a 42nd Division 'thing'.
You find it on TF Manchester Regiment shoulder titles, as well as other regiments in it plus RFA, RAMC etc.

Dont know why though.

Thanks Simon, I guess much of the insignia worn was down to "fashion" with certain formations and units. I did not realise this was down to the 42nd Division, presumably made to order for them.
