Restoration of Colours at Yately
A detachment of the 1st Battalion, King's Own Royal Regiment, paraded on the village green at Yately, Hampshire, with the 1799 King's Colour, restored to the Regiment on 10th July 1927. The Colour was given in 1816 to Colonel Faunce, who gave it in 1828 to Captain Mason; his daughter presented it in turn to Yately Parish Church in 1922. This was the first of several stands of old Colours to be returned to the Regiment and laid up in the Regimental Chapel at Lancaster.
Only a proportion of our collections are on display at anyone time. Certain items are on loan for display in other institutions. An appointment is required to consult any of our collections which are held in store.
