Royal Company of Archers, a Leather Four Fold Screen, from the Archers Hall, Edinburgh.
An exceptional four panel folding screen made of leather with a painted scene to the front depicting the Royal Company of Archers outside Holyrood Palace, taken from the original artwork by C. R. Waymer. The back of the screen is painted in a plain green colour. There is a brass plaque on the rear engraved:
‘Presented to Lt. Col., G.F.A. Pigot-Moodie.M.C. & Officers. The Royal Scots Greys, 1933, By Lieut. F.E.S. Bowlby, on leaving the regiment’.

The Royal Company of Archers is the Sovereign's personal Bodyguard in Scotland, a role it has performed since 1822 and the reign of King George IV. Its base is in Edinburgh at the Archers Hall and they were the first military body of troops in the service of the British Crown who adopted tartan as a part of their uniform. It was originally formed as an Archery Club and the longbow is still the Royal Company's principal weapon.

The Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh is The Queen's official residence in Scotland and was founded as a monastery in 1128. Mary, Queen of Scots lived there between 1561 and 1567 and successive kings and queens have made the Palace the premier royal residence in Scotland.
