Remembered Today:

27th Battalion (Tyneside Irish) Northumberland Fusiliers


Recommended Posts


Tyneside Scottish had their own "cap" badge but TI used normal NF cap badge. You sometimes see photographs with "harp" collar badge.

Just had a thought, if he was in the 4th tyneside Irish would he not have had an irish capbadge in the above picture instead of the fusilier one?

No - they wore the standard Northumberland Fusiliers cap badge, with a special shoulder title, which was the Battalion numeral above the Tyneside Irish Harp, with NF below - 27/HARP/NF
