Royal Engineers Memorial Hatchment
Photograph of memorial hatchment for the Royal Engineers. The hatchment is part of a series painted by Reverend Philip Walsh in 1899, displayed in the Taranaki Cathedral Church of St. Mary. The hatchment features the British royal coat of arms and motto. Below the crest appears a ribbon reading "UBIQUE", the acronym "RE",followed by a painted ribbon reading, "QUO FAS ET GLORIA DUCUNT". Each of these commemorate the Royal Artillery, specifically the Royal Engineers. The painting is an almost square shape, rotated 45 degrees and appears mounted on a light surface, in a dark-toned frame. The photograph is included on page 56 of William Francis Robert Gordon's album "Some "Soldiers of the Queen" who served in the Maori Wars and Other Notable Persons Connected Herewith".
