Medal naming request fos Munster fusiliers
« on: Friday 02 November 18 11:46 GMT (UK) »
Royal Munster fusiliers medals.
Can anyone help please.
Were all WW1 medals edged with R.Muns.Fus after soldiers details?

I have come across one that has R.MUNS.R and wondered if anyone could throw any light on this variation.

If the R is definitely an R and not a malformed F than I'd suspect a dodgy engraving perhaps on a replica medal.  There was no other regiment with Muns in the title.

Thanks for reply, there was also one sold at D.Noonan Webb auctions with same lettering.
