Royal Irish Fusiliers flag?


Recommended Posts

Hi Paul:

This is certainly an item pertaining to the Royal Irish Fusiliers. Whether it was an official company flag or an unofficial one it may be hard to say. My guess would be unofficial for some inter company competition. The motto (Interestingly spelt the gaelic way) and the Eagle of the 8th French line (Taken at Barrossa in the Peninsular war) are all symbols of the regiment. Impossible to date, but it would be prior to amalgamation with the Inniskillings in 1968. It is now part of the Royal Irish Regiment.
