The North Irish Horse Guidon

 

Guidon

 

A Guidon is a heraldic banner carried by cavalry regiments, the equivalent of the colours borne by regiments of line infantry. It lists the battle and theatre honours won by the regiment.

On 15 May 1960 the North Irish Horse was presented with a Guidon by Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra of Kent.

It is presently on display in the regiment's Officers' Mess at Dunmore Park Camp, Belfast.
