Colour Party

Colour party of the 76th Highland Light Infantry Militia at Telford Road Barracks. They were also known as the Inverness Militia. The Queen's Colour, on the left, and the Regimental Colour, on the right, are escorted by Colour Sergeants carrying their Yataghan bayonets (based on the Turkish curved yataghan), including fourth from the left Colour Sergeant James Dawson. On the extreme left is the Regimental Sergeant Major.

A Colour is a flag bearing a regimental crest or symbol. It was used as a rallying point in battle. Now, its use is largely symbolic, representing the spirit of the regiment and the remembrance of soldiers who have served in it
