St. George’s day (23rd. April) is the day the English celebrate their patron saint. I got speaking to some veteran army Fusiliers who were wearing their former military insignia and medals. This image, as simple as it is, sums up the pride they felt in being Englishmen who had served their country. The badge bears the motto ‘Quo Fata Vocant’ (Whither the Fates call) which belonged to the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers, a regiment which is now part of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. The red and white roses represent the colours of Saint George.
