If you mean, is it an abbreviation for Northumberland Fusiliers? Well - it might be, but civilians are notoriously bad at getting correct abbreviations for the military (who can confuse themselves enough!) I'd start with that interpretation but you need to prove it if you can.

See http://www.1914-1918.net/northfus.htm and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Northumberland_Fusiliers
