This Day In History: 1911-12-12

The 2nd King Edward’s Own Gurkhas (The Sirmoor Rifles), with the Queen’s Truncheon, was part of the Royal Guard of Honour at the Delhi Durbar for King George V. The Truncheon was accorded seniority over all Colours on parade. Click here for rare colour footage of troops on parade at the Durbar (but unfortunately not the 2nd Goorkhas).
