Description
This is the insignia of The Prince of Wales as displayed on the gravestone of an infantry man from The Welch Regiment. The insignia bears the motto 'Ich dien' – 'I serve'.

From 1921 The Welch Regiment was known simply as 'The Welch', using an Old English spelling of 'Welsh', and it drew its soldiers from South and West Wales. It existed as an independent force from 1881 to 1969.

In 1969, the 1st Battalion The Welch Regiment amalgamated with The 1st Battalion The South Wales Borderers to form the 1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Wales 24th/41st. The traditions of both Regiments were handed to the Royal Regiment of Wales.
