Regalia are all items of Hereward's personal equipment, in order from the Arming of Humakt myth. Each cohort also has a Standard, whcih is much more visible as a rallying point (hard to follow a pair of gloves in battle).

Recent history of the Third

Siggyr joined it in 1611, and his first Ten-thane was Egil Nine-Wounds, now the Temple Quartermaster.
Egil was injured in 1612(?), Broyan Iron-balls took his place as Ten-thane for 1613, died there.
The other ten-thane in 1613 was called Oddi, also died there.
1613, Siggyr got made Ten-thane (age 19)
In 1613, Olaf was the Hundred-thane, but he died later as a result of a runaway pig in Jonstown that "left nothing but a bloody smear". Still alive in 1616.

Siggyr was transferred out in 1617.

1619, Whitewall, entire Hundred lost to Shargashi.

Notes, comments, discrepancies


We have a note that the 7th and 10th were lost in the Dragonkill?
[guy] yes the original standards of the 7th & 10th were lost in the dragonkill & subsequent heroquests recovered them. [/guy]
So whatever they are, they're not all that flammable :)

[guy]
you have the regalia as being held by the centurions - is this always the case? i thought the VII cohort standard embodied that wyter...
[/guy]
I was assuming that as a general rule, the centurions would either hold the regalia themselves, or have someone right next to them holding it for them (depending on what it is). This needn't be a hard & fast rule, of course. If the wyter's in a sword, they probably wield it (well, if they're sword-using). If it's in a pet lobster, they may delegate :)

Quick swap of numbers - we had the Fourth being lost at Whitewall, but according to Siggyr's backstory, it was the Third.
