Default RRF cloth title

Hi , Like a opinion on these please, the cloth title i bought as never seen one and figured it may be for use on brassard as bd was out of use by c.61 - 62 i think . And this might be silly way of thinking but if it never existed why fake it [ also seen a Royal Green Jackets ? ].The RF badge i am not too sure of either but not sure why..just a feeling
Thanks Iain

The GMIC forum has mention of these on a lengthy thread about RRF. I think Graeme Stuart shows images of them.
I have one that I bought with a Fusilier Brigade anod. al. beret badge (which carried over into RRF usage) and some cadet marksmanship badges, so I was thinking cadet usage of the title.

Entered the 1966 Clothing Regulations by amendment number 5 of November 1977 as NSN CB 8455-99-974-0673.

1977, interesting.
In 1978 1st Bn were wearing just "Fusilier" with separate UN badge on brassards while serving with UNFICYP (but not with ESBA as RRF beret badge and hackle were worn).
Rumour was that the "Fusilier" titles were actually ACF insignia.
A few attached 17/21L personnel making up numbers with 1RRF wore the brassards with the Fusilier title removed and replaced by a 17/21L motto in chrome or anod. al.
