Regimental Battle Honours
To the honoured memory of THE OFFICERS AND MEN who have fallen in defence of their country.
The Regiment can trace its roots back to 1685 and during this time has been awarded 173 Battle Honours.
Of these 44 are recorded on The Guidon which was presented to the Regiment by the then Colonel in Chief, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother on the 14th June 1997.
Battle Honours obtained in the Great War or the Second World War are grouped together on the Reverse side of the Guidon, chronologically but by Theatre. Hence KHAN BAGDHADI appears after AMIENS, and VILLERS BOCAGE appears before EL ALAMEIN.
Those Honours not obtained in the two World Wars appear on the Obverse side of the Guidon, in chronological order.
