Along the top are the outlines of countries they have been deployed to and down the side are stylised symbols representing the disciplines they are trained in: Infantry (Crossed Rifles), CBRN (chemical flask), Firefighting (crossed rifle and axe, with stylised flame), Airfield Engineering (Bridge), Bomb Disposal (bomb with crossed swords and wings above water), Field Intelligence (horse head) and Logistics (atom within cog wheel). At the top left is the regimental badge. Oil on canvas
