Gents, I wondering if someone can give me some info ref Battle Dishonours / Disgraces worn on uniforms by members of the British Army. For example my old unit 1BW wore squared toed spats - Worn "alledgedly" for breaking the square at Quatre Bras or Tamai...Unbelievably nobody seems to know the truth about how the square toed spat evolved !! I have also been told of several RA units wearing lanyards of various colours as a Battle Dishonour for losing their guns....is this true?? I was told many years ago that Regiments do not wear Battle Dishonours as it would be bad for morale /esprit de corps. Cheers.
