Description

In this second of a two-part sequence a respected vexillologist describes, explains and illustrates a wide variety of the King's and Regimental colors carried during the 18th and 19th centuries by British Household, Regular, Militia and Volunteer infantry regiments. The successive regulations between 1747 and 1881 - when the carrying of colors in the field ceased - are supported by comprehensive tables of 'ancient badges' and battle honors; many careful drawings; and by ten dazzling plates by Richard Hook, detailing some 35 flags in full color, as well as a number of famous color-bearers.
