King's Guidon 1832

The crimson King's Guidon was carried by the 14th following their change of title to King's Light Dragoons in 1830. The Royal Arms has replaced the conjoined rose thistle and shamrock, and the Prussian eagle has replaced the previous XIV LD. There are no battle honours on the Sovereign's guidon this time. The coloured illustration shows the flag flying left while the photo below it shows it flying right. This shows both sides of the guidon and it can be seen that the horses and eagles remain in the same positions. Also the White horse gallops towards the flag-pole in each case and the eagle faces towards the pole. The devices are painted on.
