Since their formation in 2007, Glasgow originated rock band Twin Atlantic have been taking the UK music scene by storm, growing from strength to strength with two albums already released (Vivarium and Free) and a large number of live gigs and supporting performances under their belt.
On April 23rd, the band announced their third studio album Great Divide, with an August 2014 release date, though one of the album’s songs Heart and Soul had already been premiered on BBC Radio 1 nearly a month beforehand.
We recently received an order from BBC Bristol to create an historical flag. The flag was the old regimental flag for The Queen’s Own Hussars regiment, known as a “guidon”, which was used in battles to help direct the troops and enable them to rally in the right areas.
The Queen’s Own Hussars were merged with The Queen’s Royal Irish Hussars in 1993 to become the Queen’s Royal Hussars. The regiment itself traces its roots back to 1685 and during the past 320 years has been awarded 172 Battle Honours and 8 Victoria Crosses.
