Remembered Today:

unit marking identification - long lee

Recommended Posts


Wondering if anyone has an opinion on the markings stamped into the tang of the butt of a CLLE. Tentitivly identified one set as 8th Battalion Royal Scotts but am completely at sea with the rest.


Any help would be appreciated.

Well, I suppose it is dated 2 (19)10, but it is almost as if a final letter is missing for a '1st/5th of the D'

8th Royal Scots (Pioneer) seems quite possible - and 2/10 RS were "famous" too for going to Russia but were in Ireland until late in the war. Pure guesswork but 1/5th DCLI were another pioneer battalion that might have had an MLE offloaded onto them, and there are of course other 1/5 Ds too, such as as Devonshires.
