News - Fife and Drum Corps Honoured with a Drum Major's baldric


New Baldric.
At the Rose House Museum on September 19th and 20th 2009, the Loyalist Fifes and Drums were presented with a Drum Major's Baldric. A baldric is an elaborately decorated sash worn by the Drum Major of a fife and drum corps. Traditionally, the Baldric is adorned with regimental insignia and regimental battle honours.

The Loyalist Fifes and Drums' Baldric is a beautifully designed sash, which includes the royal cipher of King George III, a silver drum, and battle honours of Loyalist Regiments that fought during the American Revolution and served in Canada. The Baldric was designed and made by Hand and Lock, which has been a supplier of military garments since 1767.

The Baldric was a gift to the Corps from Robert Stewart (retired Yorker Fifer), on behalf of the "old and retired Fifes and Drums of the King's Royal Yorkers."

This marvellous piece of regalia will certainly be a treasured part of the Corps' history.
