The Tiger - Why is it worn? An explanation.


The Tiger

Our Forebear Regiment 67th of Foot, having served 21 years of active service in India was ordered by to England in 1826. In commemoration of this, King George IV authorized the figure of the Royal Bengal Tiger with the word 'India' superscribed to be borne on its Regimental Colour and other appointments. The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment retains this honour today and maintains the nickname of 'The Tigers'.

Officers and Solider of the Regiment ware a 'Tiger' badge on their right arm.
