Then the "Color is Trooped" – a regimental flag (the 'Color') is paraded ('Trooped') in front of the Queen.  This artwork is by Christopher Clark, painted in 1932. It is rare to find this poster in such vibrant condition.

Clark painted images for The London, Midland and Scotland Railway as well as The London Northeastern Railway.  He created many posters for these railway systems but is best known for his paintings of military and historical subjects such as this.
