'14 - '18 RN designations on a Victory Medal

Good evening gentlemen.

An enquiry for the more historically minded, if you'd be so kind.

I have a Victory medal with Grandfather Rat's details inscribed into the edge. The designation " M.F.A" I understand as Merchant Fleet Auxiliary, which fits, as he served on a "Q" ship. Your question for this evening is as follows. What is the meaning of the designation "TR", inscribed after the surname and before the MFA.

Thank you. I'll watch and wait.

Got an idea it may be "Training Reserve". Just a stab in the dark there really though, difficult to say without any other details of his service.
