:

Several regiments of militia having volunteered their services for the garrisons of the Mediterranean during the siege of Sevastopol, thereby liberated Regiments of the Line to proceed to the Crimea, which essentially contributed to the success of the army in that quarter;-the Queen accordingly authorised the following corps, whose services were accepted, to bear the word "MEDITERRANEAN" on their colours, viz.: -Royal Berkshire; East Kent; 1st Royal Lanca-shire; 3rd Royal Lancashire; 3rd, Royal Westminster, Middlesex; Northampton; Oxford; 1st, King's Own, Stafford; Royal Wiltshire; 2nd West York.

Since January, 1859, Regiments of Dragoon Guards and Dragoons have been ordered to carry only a single standard or guidon. Light Dragoons, Hussars, and Lancers do not carry either,

Regiments which have no standard or colours bear their distinctions on the cap or helmet-plates. Rifle

Regiments wear them on their breast-plates and capplates. The English regiments of foot had formerly a colour to each company. In the War-Office Records is a warrant of King James II., dated 21st August, 1686, authorising the payment of £206 5s. 6d. for ten colours for the Queen's Regiment of Foot. They were afterwards formed into three divisions, on the same principle as the Continental armies, viz., two wings of musqueteers, and a centre division of pikemen. Each division had a stand of colours, that it might act separately. The Swedish Infantry were formed in this manner by Gustavus Adolphus, and the example was copied by Marshals de Turenne and Montecuculi. This mode of formation was, however, changed during the reign of Queen Anne, when the general adoption of bayonets took place, and the division of pikemen being discontinued, the third colour became unnecessary, and was consequently laid aside.

The Queen's Royals after the year 1688 had three stand of colours, in common with other regiments; it happened, however, that this third colour was retained in possession by the corps until 1750, probably from the long absence of the regiment on foreign service, it having embarked in 1730 for Gibraltar, where it remained until 1749.

A belief had thus been induced that the Queen's Royal Regiment had been permitted, as a distinction, to carry three colours, as appears by a letter from General Robert Donkin, who entered the regiment as an ensign in 1747, and served in it until 1759. He states:-"On our marching over Island Bridge into Dublin city in 1750, the third colour was, by order of General Fowke (then colonel of the regiment),
