By Ian Sumner, Richard Hook

During this moment of a two-part series a revered vexillologist describes, explains and illustrates a wide selection of the King's and Regimental shades carried in the course of the 18th and nineteenth centuries by way of British loved ones, normal, military and Volunteer infantry regiments. The successive rules among 1747 and 1881 - whilst the sporting of colors within the box ceased - are supported via complete tables of 'ancient badges' and conflict honours; many cautious drawings; and via ten superb plates by way of Richard Hook, detailing a few 35 flags in complete color, in addition to a few well-known colour-bearers.
