Regimental flags, Royal Artillery
« on: Monday 24 December 18 16:07 GMT (UK) »
Royal Artillery units for years past have flown a roughly triangular flag, showing the unit number.  Can any of our wise men or women tell me about the origin of this emblem and if there is any online image?  Google has let me down, although Aussie and Canadian versions are shown.
Happy Christmas to all!

PS. Flag may be the wrong term.  Is there a formal one?

Can't answer the origin question but images a-plenty here in the Garrison Church at Larkhill :

Pennants accepted, thanks.  What a fine display in the church, probably a special event.
Can you reheat sprouts?
Happy Christmas
