I am advised that this suggestion, which has been many times considered, involves the whole principle on which the regimental colours of the Army have been modelled since the Act of Union. I am therefore not in favour of any change. I may add that the Cross of St. George is the regimental colour only of regiments with scarlet or white facings, and not of all English colour-bearing regiments.
