Ypres Banner

At the Battle of Ramilies in 1706, an Irish Wild Geese Regiment under Lord Clare won a major victory as part of the French Army. This banner was designed to create a link with the original Wild Geese and Clare men of the Irish Divisions of the British Army that fought in the First World War.
