Origin of stable belts

The stable belt became  popular with the British  Army at the beginning of the  20th century, but was used long before that with cavalry regiments in the stables hence the name.In the 1900's the belt became popular with officers as they had been wearing ties in regiment colours. This led to the increase use of colours and stable  belts followed with the colours of the regiments.

RA Colours

The RA uses red with blue on flags, pennants and wherever else the colours are required. The colours are taken from The Union Flag.
