In "The Press", 23 August 2010, Dan Bean reports the rediscovery of a 18th
century flag in the York Army Museum, as follows:
Sullivan, a retired Major who now curates the York Army Museum, decided to roll
up his sleeves and clear out the storeroom when he came across an item leaning
against a damp wall. [...]
The framed flag was inscribed with a claim that it
was “the personal flag of the first lord Amherst, Colonel of the Regiment from
1751 to 1757”, and was believed to have been flown at Quebec after its capture
in 1759. The regiment in question was the 15th Regiment of Foot, later the East
Yorkshire Regiment and the Prince of Wales’s Own Regiment of Yorkshire, which
fought against the French during the Seven Years War in North America.
“When Lord Amherst presented it to his former Regiment is not recorded,” said
Michael, who served with the regiment for 38 years. “However, it is safe to say
that, with the help of the Association of Independent Museums, this flag, which
is of national as well as regimental significance, has been restored to a
condition of which everyone involved can be proud.”
Rod Allison, from
Tadcaster firm Gallery 42, has created a special frame for the flag, to allow it
to be taken to its new temporary home overseas. “The flag has been reframed and
is heading to Germany to hang in the mess hall of the Prince of Wales’s Own
Regiment stationed out there. [...]"
The colour photo attached to the
article shows a square white flag with a red cross and the Union Jack of the
time in canton.
