The proudest possessions of any regiment are its colours – the flags which it carries into battle. Its history is recorded on those colours, the wars it has taken part in, the victories it has won.
A regiment guards its colours fiercely. To have them captured by the enemy is a terrible thing. But when a man hands over the colours to save his own skin it is a disgrace that brave soldiers can hardly bear think about.
