Polychromed wood bearing the cypher of King George V (1865-1936) over the crossed Sovereign’s Sceptre and The Sword of State.

Gold Staff Officers were selected by the hereditary Earl Marshal of England, the Duke of Norfolk to serve as marshals in Westminster Abbey on Coronation day. A contemporary newspaper reported that in the case of George V’s coronation in 1937, the Duke was ‘bombarded’ with offers from former officers to serve. Approximately a hundred were selected.
