NA436 The Temporary Regimental Standard Bearer


SKU: NA436 Category:


In battle and other times the Regimental Colours were usually held by a junior subaltern. In battle, standard bearers were often prime targets for enemy snipers and riflemen and suffered accordingly.
Here, a lowly corporal holds the Regimental standard after the young officer was killed… He is also seen firing one of the officer’s pistols.
