40th Regiment Memorial Hatchment
Photograph of memorial hatchment for the 40th (2nd Somersetshire) Regiment of Foot. The hatchment is part of a series painted by Reverend Philip Walsh in 1899, displayed in the Taranaki Cathedral Church of St. Mary. It contains the number "40" below a crown at the top and "2nd Somersetshire" in a banner along the bottom. There are two flags in the centre, one with the Union Jack and the other with a list of service around a central laurel and crown. The painting is square shaped, rotated 45 degrees and appears mounted on a light surface, in a dark-toned frame. The photograph is included on page 30 of William Francis Robert Gordon's album "Some "Soldiers of the Queen" who served in the Maori Wars and Other Notable Persons Connected Herewith".
