A specialist banner maker is in line for a series of Ministry of Defence contracts after it supplied a riband which the Queen presented to her personal bodyguard.
All Arms Manufacturing (AMMO), based in Lombard Street, Birmingham, embroidered the silk memento handed to Her Majesty’s Bodyguard of the Honourable Corps of Gentlemen at Arms as part of the 500th anniversary of the role.
Managing director Tommy Dalman said it was a prestigious contract to win, and revealed there are similar deals in the pipeline for the company.
He said: “AMMO has a number of high profile Ministry of Defence contracts in the pipeline.
“One of these is for a new set of colours, a Queen’s colour and a regimental colour for the Royal Pacific Islands Regiment.
“AMMO is working closely with the College of Arms and the High Commissioner for Papua New Guinea on their production.”
The crimson riband presented to the Honourable Corps of Gentlemen at Arms featured Queen’s royal cypher and crown clasp, hand embroidered in gold bullion and inscribed Nearest Guard 1509 – 2009.
The company recently supplied a banner to Sir Ranulph Fiennes, which was displayed on his recent Mount Everest climb.
