Default 89 AGRA Formation Sign.

00.06.53. Military Heraldry Society publication ‘Formation Sign’ Issue 10, noted that prior to introduction of the horseshoe FS members of 89 AGRA wore a FS comprising yellow seaxes on blue.

Has anyone got any evidence to support this assertion please?

Thanks, Stephen.

Default 89 AGRA FS

Thanks to the 70 of you who looked at this post. Hopefully the 71st will have an answer.

Stephen.

In a word - No! But if it was a reported sighting in a very early "Formation Sign" I would be inclined to believe it. If not a sign for 89 AGRA(TA) it could possibly have been a regimental flash for the Essex Yeomanry in their Gunner incarnation. The colours suggest an RHA association.
