Description of the flag

The Yeomanry’s badge was the Somerset Dragon and its colours are recorded officially recorded as being “Violet, Campari red” and a narrow strip of “corn”, as attached. Dave White, who first came across the flag tells me that he believes the blue/purple fimbriation could indeed be described as “violet”. I think the combination of the rampant dragon, the unusual usage of violet and the narrow strip of yellow make it too much of a coincidence to be attributed to anything else.
