12th (East Suffolk) Regiment Memorial Hatchment
Photograph of memorial hatchment for the 12th (East Suffolk) Regiment. 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 two flags crossing, one of the Union Jack featuring the Crown and "XII", the other the 12th regimental flag. At the top, between the flags, there is an image of the British Crown and the numerals "XII". Painted below, across the flagpoles, is a banner reading "EAST SUFFOLK". An image of a medallion featuring the Suffolk insignia covers where the flagpoles cross. At the bottom appears an image of a rose bouquet. 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 57 of William Francis Robert Gordon's album "Some "Soldiers of the Queen" who served in the Maori Wars and Other Notable Persons Connected Herewith".
