Royal Newfoundland Regiment - First World War
« on: September 24, 2002, 08:42:00 »

I am currently working to verify uniforms and accoutrements for the Nova
Scotia Tattoo. For one of the scenes in the upcoming Tattoo, the show
will be dressing 94 Canadians to represent Canada‘s Victoria Cross
Winners.
I was wondering if anyone can confirm for me what divisional and
regimental flashes and shoulder titles were being worn by the Royal
Newfoundland Regiment during the First World War. Specifically, I am
concerned with the accoutrements that would be on the uniform of Private
Thomas Ricketts when he won the Victoria Cross in October, 1918. I would
like to know colours, shapes, and locations if possible. Any graphics
you could provide to clarify your comments would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

still like to know if it is included.
