Regimental Guidon Flying Left 1832

The second guidon for the 14th was blue, the same colour as the facings on their uniforms now that they were a Royal regiment. The new title, granted in 1830, is in the middle of the Garter which has the King's Garter motto. The eagle, or Hawk, is in the second and third corners, to replace the Roman numerals. The battle honours for the Peninsula War are emblazoned on the spaces between the devices. Unfortunately this excellent example of cavalry guidon was only carried until 1834 when they were laid aside.
