3rd Battalion Regimental Colour 1936

This Colour was presented to the 3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards at Hyde Park on 16 July 1936 by King Edward VIII. The 3rd Company Badge of a golden Fleur-de-lis is the central device. It would be reasonable to assume that the numeral III below the fleur-de-lis signified the 3rd Battalion but this is in fact the company number. The battalion number is in the upper canton. The 34 battle honours are displayed on both sides of the flag and repeated on the King's Colour, and on the Colours of the other two battalions.
