19 October 2007

In his report on this service, Mordicus mentioned that "the kneeler on the chair next to mine had a large image of a skull and crossbones on it, with the words 'Or Glory' underneath."

I suspect this was the regimental Totenkopf badge of the Queen's Royal Lancers, or of one of its predecessor regiments back to the 17th Lancers (Duke of Cambridge's Own) formed during the Seven Years War. The Totenkopf badge was adopted in commemoration of General James Wolf, who died during the Battle of Quebec.
