Hey all - I need some help, and I figured you guys might know this.
My father is a big fan of the that period of history when British Empire ruled the world.
I got him a lance set and pennant, and I would like to assemble it properly into a guidon - I don't know if that is what you boys call it.

Regiment is the 17/21 Lancers

My question is - what material should be used for the staff/pole?
Thanks in advance.

Hiya,

I don't really know, but the 17th 21st is the skull & cross bones gang, When you are through putting thing's together please post some piccy's.

Thank's.

My mate Paul of Barnsley, has suggested ''Yew'', failing that, check the Imperial War Museum's webpage.

Here's the link
