flags captured by russian troops during WW1
 
Just out of curiosity, did the North Vietnamese or Vietcong go into battle with streaming flags and all, line infantry style? If not, am I correct to assume that the Soviets and Japanese were the last to follow flag bearers into combat in WW2?
At least chinese PLA used flag bearers during their involvement in Korea and Vietnam
The Taliban weren't a thing until after the Soviet-Afghan War. I'd assume they're Mujahideen flags.
What later became known Taliban was part of Hezb-e Islami Khalis movement during soviet presence in A-stan

That looks like a Royal Marines flag. Never heard of a Gibralter Infantry Regiment.
 
The GIB was formed in 1958.


The flag shown is from a generic British Regiment that had served on Gibraltar at some point and then served on the Crimean Campaign.

Fully aware of the Royal Gibralter Regiment, which wasn't around at the time of the Crimean War, but I maintain that is a faded RM logo in the middle of that flag..... I think anyway?

Would be interesting to see a close up.

Technically this was not the Crimean Campaign. Crimean War yes, but it was captured at the Siege of Petropavlovsk on the Kamchatka Peninsula on the Pacific Coast of Russia. (31 August - 4 September, 1854). I believe it was one of the few clear cut victories for the Russians over the British-French forces during the war.

The colour pictured was found washed up on shore after the battle. I assume it is a generic colour, (as you said), of one of the RM Detachments that landed to assault the Russian shore batteries.

Very cool to see a photo of the actual colour. I have only seen black and white prints until reading this page.
