  King's Colour Cap Badge

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.
