Drum Banner 1935

The drum banners, seen here on display at the regimental museum, were completed in time for the Silver Jubilee celebrations for King George V in 1935, and the 250th anniversary of the raising of the regiment (1685-1935). The old banners with Victoria's crown and four battle honours has been replaced by these with the King's crown and ten battle honours for World War One added. The shabraque badges can be seen here; the Bays badge with motto and crown (not the King's crown), and Queen Caroline's reverse cypher within the Garter. The gold lace border on the shabraque and banner are the same laurel leaf pattern as was used on the officers' pillbox caps.
