I am building a 28mm force to represent the Lahore Mobile Column. I have searched online, and in the few Mutiny books I have but have failed to find any information about flags for the following regiments:

4th Sikh regiment
1st Punjab regiment (Coke Rifles)
2nd Punjab regiment (Green)
4th Punjab regiment (Wilde)

I am not sure if these units even carried flags.

Any help would b greatly appreciated.

Mike Snook discusses the composition and uniforms of the Punjaub Irregular Force on his Iron Duke website. You may find some useful information here:

As the regiments were variously uniformed in rifle green or Khaki and were committed to frontier duties, I doubt they carried colurs in the field. Snook doesn't mention any.
