I have read somewhere that a tiny fragment of the 1st Battalions Queens Colour was sent to Coghills Farther who placed it in a locket and kept it for the rest of his life.


Can anyone confirm this or is the locket on display anywhere??

Hi DB14.
Fairly certain it did happen as I've seen it somewhere as well but due to the many books I've read
cant tell you which book its in . I might have a quick search before signing off .
cheers 90th.

Just found this on the internet :)

Sir Joscelyn Coghill, Nevill's father, was sent a tiny scrap of the Colour, smaller than a postage stamp, which he had enclosed in a gold and crystal locket.


Brilliant i wonder if its on display anywhere??

Dave,
The VC was going to be presented to Coghills farther but sadly he died before the awards
where made. The VC was given to his brother and i am pretty sure now in the museum.
