Regimental Standards and Cap Badges

Within the regimental system, soldiers and officers are posted to a tactical unit of their own regiment whenever posted to field duty.

A regiment is likely to include:

- a symbolic colonel-in-chief (often a member of the royal family),
- a Colonel of the Regiment or "honorary colonel" who protects the traditions and interests of the regimental family and insists on the maintenance of high standards,
- battle honours (honours earned by one unit of an administrative regiment are shared by the whole regiment),
- ceremonial uniforms,
- cap badges,
- and regimental marches and songs.
