A shako is a tall, cylindrical military cap, usually adorned with an ornamental designation plate on the front and a feather plume or pompon on the top.

The word shako is derived from the Hungarian word meaning "peaked cap." See above image.

The motto ‘Ubique’ thus took the place of all battle honours conferred on the Regiment prior to that date and all which have been earned by the regiment since then.

The Colours of the Royal Regiment of Artillery are its Guns or Weapon Systems.

When on parade on Ceremonial occasions the Guns and Weapon Systems are to be accorded the same compliments as the Standards, Guidons and Colours of the Cavalry and Infantry.

The Regiment proudly refers to ‘Ubique’ as its Battle Honour.

The Boston Light Infantry as well as the New York Light Guard of the 1840s had similar tiger motifs, all with clipped cornered rolled brass plates with a brass tiger head attached by wires clinched through the plate and with a soldered brass attachment pin. This style shoulder plate had a resurgence in the 1880s along with the Baldric device and staff officer's dress cartridge box as seen in the 1880s photo of William Miller Owen below.To date, there is yet no document or picture to confirm whether this plate is of the 1850 or 1880 era.
