This is our local regiment and we work annually supply them with fully sewn (as shown) and printed flags according to their needs.
Historically The Royal Welsh is one of the new large infantry regiments of the British Army. After the restructuring and reorganisation of the army in 2006, the Royal Welsh is one of three regiments to trace its lineage and draw its recruits primarily from Wales.
The regiment's formation was announced on 16 December 2004 as part of the restructuring of the infantry and it was actually formed on St David's Day, 1 March 2006. The Royal Welsh initially consisted of two Regular Army battalion, plus an Army Reserve battalion. The former regiments formed part of the battalion title (in brackets):
