lord lieutenant of north yorkshire


This is the Lord Lieutenant of North Yorkshire. Wikipedia described the uniform (more or less), but I can't find anything about the devices on his shoulder boards. In this case there's the rose from his cap device (worn, I read, by English lords lieutenant) and a Crown - rather like a lieutenant-colonel's badge of rank.

Anyone have any knowledge of this?

I think he's wearing a crown and the Tudor Rose. That's about all I can tell you. It could be that the rose and crown are meant to be worn together as a single badge.
Sadly, that's all I know.

A Lord Lieutenant in England wears the Tudor rose with a crown over it. This is both their badge of rank and their cap badge. A Deputy Lord Lieutenant wears on only the Tudor rose as their badge of rank and cap badge.

Here is a picture of the uniform of a Deputy Lieutenant:

In Scotland instead of the rose they wear a thistle:

In Northern Ireland a Shamrock:

In Wales they wear the plumes of the Prince of Wales:

And the cap device for the Deputy Lieutenant reflects that! The gorget patch is that of a Staff Officer rather than a General Office, and one row less of oak leaves on the visor. So a kind of consistency throughout. Thanks!
