2/7th Royal Warwickshire shoulder titles?

Recommended Posts

I am putting together a display for a MM winner, 2/7th Royal Warwickshire Regiment. The 2/7th were a Territorial unit, as such, please could someone advise which shoulder title they would have worn?

Before 1916 the ST comprised: R.WARWICKSHIRE surmounted by a ‘7’ surmounted again by a ‘T’ with serifs, generally all in one piece.  It did not make any difference to the title if the battalion was 2nd Line, as in this case.

Thank you, that is what I feared on the cost front. After 1916 did they all wear the standard R.WARWICKSHIRE title?

After 1916 the same title with a plain ‘T’ (no serifs) and no number, was used for a while.  It is less clear what the 2nd Line units did.

Post 1916 likely to have been just RWARWICKSHIRE also. No T and numeral. Done away with but seen side by side still.
