Ebook on CD

Special Attributes:

1st Edition




ISBN 978-0-9775033-8-4

 Format: CD (ISBN 978-0-9775033-8-40) containing the book as a pdf file, PowerPoint file & movie footage of the presentation Guidon at Mona Vale and in 1935 and the presentation of Queen's and Regimental Colours to 1RTR at Brighton Camp in 1968.


This photographic history of Guidons, Colours, Banners, Standards, and Flags presented to the Army in Tasmania, is an Ebook on CD and resulted from researching the history of the “Launceston Regiment, 1860-1960”.


As I became more and more confused with the Colours presented to the Launceston Regiment and their current location, I also discovered errors in the official record of Australian Army Colours; The Ceremonial Manual, Volume 2, Chapter 3, Annex I.


For example, the Regimental Colour presented to the Launceston Regiment on Saturday, 13th August, 1927 and laid up in the Launceston Town Hall on 27th April, 1970 are not listed in the official record.


The other anomaly discovered, was when the Kings Colours were presented by the Governor General in September 1920, they were not consecrated. This was not rectified until Saturday 29th October 1925, when the Kings Colour was consecrated and re-presented to the 12th Battalion at Launceston by the Commandant of the 6th Military District, Brigadier General C. H. Jess, CMG, CBE, DSO.


Likewise, the 40th Battalion’s Colour was consecrated on Sunday, 28th February, 1926 and reported in The Mercury newspaper as detailed:





A ceremony unique in the history of that portion of the Australian military forces raised in Hobart bas been arranged for Saturday afternoon next. The occasion will be the consecration and presentation of the King's colours to the 40th Battalion. This handsome silk colour was handed over to the custody of the battalion by Lord Novar, then the Right Hon. Sir Ronald Munro Ferguson, in his capacity as Governor-General in 1920, in commemoration of services rendered by tho 40th Battalion, A.I.F., in the Great War.

(The Mercury, 24 February, 1926, pp9)


This prompted me to correct the errors and hence the publication of this record.


It is also proposed to have the official record corrected.


Due to the lack of official records (or their inaccuracy), many items from the press have been quoted verbatim.
