  • IX (Norfolk?) banner Toye make

    Purchased in Norfolk, assuming it to be associated with the (Royal) Norfolk regiment. Missing something off the top, three ties, some form of transfer printed insignia, the tassles were originally a deep red colour. I considered a drum drape, but not the right shape and lacking the intricate work of regimental drapes?
    And am I right a similar example appeared on this forum before? I tried to locate the thread but..............

          Music stand banner, made around the early1930's for the 2nd Battalion when they were stationed in Portsmouth. Disposed off by the Regimentel Assosiation about 15 years ago circa 50-60 sold or givenaway

            A lovely piece of information, thank you for sharing. May I enquire how you came to know this? I only have a couple of standard regimental reference books on the Norfolks and neither gave any clues as to this banners' history.

                Very interesting indeed, thank you very much for sharing the information
                I don't suppose you would know what the missing parts were on the top of the banner?

                  didn't think anything was missing from the top, Should just be 3 strings to tie onto the stands and wood to give it regidity.by the way The Norfolks had black drapes for drums and music stand banners in memory of Gen Sir John Moore who they buried at Corunna in 1809

                      I've recently bought an embroidered panel of the colours of The Northumberland Fusiliers, looks like it's a very similar production to the panel that you're showing the bottom of.
