  5. death of sir john moore isn't it? from the Royal Norfolk regiment
  6. I thought it was General Wolfe in Quebec, but i am not sure, thanks anyway maybe your correct.
  7. didn't the Essex (44th Foot) have a red backing for the battle lo Paoli in 1777?
  8. actually, the 9th Foot (East Norfolks) were given the honour of burying General Sir John Moore - in 1881 the Norfolks were permitted to wear a black backing to their cap badge in recognition of this. I think this is what the Army calls a golden thread :wink:

  10. Thanks, the Daddy , you have been a great help.
