Kneller Hall and Royal Hampshires band banner

artefact

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