    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $145 and take approximately 6-8 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

  • The Pipe-Major of the 2nd Battalion, The Scots Guards, is seen here in full dress uniform, with silver-mounted sporran, cross belt and waist-belt. Whenever Her Majesty the Queen is in residence at the Palace of Holyrood-house, Edinburgh, a Guard of Honor and a Pipe Band are furnished by The Scots Guards. This famous regiment is one of five regiments of Foot Guards and was founded in 1642 by King Charles I; its fighting record is unsurpassed.
