Having just read a discussion in the TA Forum about Colours it got me wondering how a unit is awarded a Battle Honour and a Colour. Is it a case of every battle you are in gets a battle honour or does the unit have to distinguish itself on the field? Do you get awarded colours on formation or must you do something to deserve them. Does the Queen award them or CGS? Have we won any in Iraq, AL FAW or BASRAH for instance? Under the FAS and the FIS will the new Super Regiments have new Colours? Does anyone know?
