Queen’s band banner

artefact

A highly decorative piece of embroidery, depicting the Regimental Badge of The Queen's Regiment. These were traditionally placed on the front of the music stands of each of the instruments played when the Band was giving a seated concert, such as in a Band Stand or when a small group such as a quartet were playing at a small function. Since the Queen's Regiment and the Royal Hampshire Regiment amalgamated to formed The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment in 1992 , this item has been cased for display, within the Officers' Mess of the 3rd Battalion The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, in Leros Barracks, Canterbury.
