Product Description

An original Victorian period hand embroidered crossed standards and the list of Battle Honours for the IV Royal Infantry Regiment of Foot (The King’s Own - Royal Lancaster Regiment).

The beautiful embroidery is Chinese in style and has been embroidered in silver bullion and colou red silk thread. It shows a very Asian looking rampant Lion, the Regimental emblem, that appears on the cap badges, above the crossed Regimental Colours, with the legend below: ‘The KING’S OWN REGIMENTAL COLOURS AND BADGE. The embroidery dates from around 1880, as the last battle honours represented are the Abyssinia (1868) War and the Zulu (South Africa) War of 1879. The silk embroidery is remains nice and fresh, except for the blue that has all but faded on the Union flag in silver, but the white and red contrast nicely. The scrolls containing the battle names is in a yellow-gold silk. The overall condition is extremely good, because it has been mounted, framed and glazed.

The King's Own Royal Regiment (Lancaster) was a line infantry regiment of the British Army. It served under various titles, numbered the IV Infantry Regiment, and fought in many wars and conflicts, including both the First and the Second World Wars, from 1680 to 1959. In 1959, the regiment was amalgamated with the Border Regiment to form the King's Own Royal Border Regiment.
