I return to this list on a quest for information in regards to the
ceremonies surronding the laying up of Regimental Colours at the end of
their "usefulness" and the consecration of new Regimental Colours upon
their receipt. I have found a "modern" site detailing the consecration of
the colours of the 8th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment in 1968 -- and
while this is a useful site and a starting point, it's obviously not 1777.
Any assistance is most graciously accepted in this endeavour.
