Default T 1 RF City of London Shoulder Title

Hi Folks

Imagine wearing a pair of these and webbing and carrying a rifle etc etc! Surely this is some sort of make up isn't it?

It's been pretty well done if it is a make up except for one slip-up or repair between the F and London.

Although as you say rifles and webbing must have played havoc, these are perfectly genuine.

Smile T/RF/LONDON

As Jon says perfectly original and an early issue, I believe due to "Rifle damage" they were made later with T1 or whatever the number separate and the grenade/RF/CITY OF LONDON in one piece below.
