-=====Flags=====+Lord Molyneux made his way south by 1645 and was given command of [[royalist:​horse-regiments:​prince-maurices-lifeguard|Prince Maurice’s Lifeguard of Horse]], perhaps incorporating remnants of his own regiment.  
 +=====Flags ​& Equipment===== 
 +According to Blount: //The Lord Mollineux figured a Sun obscured by a Cressant, the word from the Sun was, QUID SI REPULSERO? from the Cressant (which darted its horns (as they call those of a new Moon) to obscure the Sun) VAE CORNBUS MEIS. By the Sun surely was meant the King, and by the corniferous Cressant the Earle of Essex//​((//​The Art of making Devises// 2nd Ed, Thomas Blount, London, 1655)).
 +Lieutenant Colonel Caryll Molyneux'​s cornet featured a stag's head supported by five hands and the motto //AD QUID EXALTATIS CORNU//, translated as //to what do you exalt this horn?//. The motto alludes to the Earl of Essex'​s cuckolding and perhaps the Five Members. The colour of the flag was not recorded((The English Emblem Tradition, Vol 3 Emblematic flag devices of the English Civil Wars 1642-1660. Alan R. Young, Toronto 1995, ISBN 0-8020-5739-X)).
