-What is very likely one of the Regiment'​s colours is still preserved at Anthony ​House near Plymouth, and was discovered by Stephen Beck. The flag is made of yellow silk with four black lions passant with red claws and and tongues and white teeth (probably assigned to the fourth captain'​s company of the regiment). It has been proposed that it was never issued to Carew'​s regiment and has been stored ever since. Interestingly the arms of Carew were black lions passant on a yellow field. ​+What is very likely one of the Regiment'​s colours is still preserved at Antony ​House near Plymouth, and was discovered by Stephen Beck.
