This is a Damaged ZUL027 British 24th Foot Standard Bearer with Queen's Colors by First Legion.

The tassels are off the flag and are included. Comes with original box.

Elements of the 24th Regiment were heavily engaged in the desperate and heroic defense at Rorke's Drift where less than 150 British soldiers held off a Zulu force numbering close to 4,000. In this action, the 24th Foot were awarded more Victoria's Crosses than any other single regiment in a single action in British military history.
Around the same time, the bulk of the regiment was decimated at the Battle of Islandawana where over confidence led to the annihilation of the British and allied forces.
