Colour Badges

This badge is worn by Colour Sergeants superimposed on the three gold lace chevrons. Since the early 20th century the rank of Warrant Officer Class 2 wore the badge alone, on the upper right sleeve. The badge changed according to the monarch: from the left, Victoria, George VI and Elizabeth II. The flag is the Royal Standard.
