The first pair is the Regulation Queen's Colour and the Regulation Regimental Colour. The second pair are a Honorary Queen's Colour and a Honorary Regimental Colour, originally awarded to the 76th of Foot (2DWR), for service in India by the Honorable East India Company, for the part the Regiment played in the capture of the fortress of Ally Ghur and the capture of Delhi in 1803. At the end of the campaign, at the behest of the East India Company, the Regiment was authorised to wear the word 'Hindoostan' on its Colours and Appointments. At the same time the Commander-in-Chief, Lord Lake, obtained permission for the Regiment to use the badge of an 'elephant'. A Howdah was added later.
