Sir Percival Thirlwall, standard bearer to King Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 (Pegaso Models). Legend has it that Percival held the banner aloft even after having his legs cut out from under him. It didn't help the Yorkists in the end, though, as they were defeated and the reign of the Tudors began.

John Ashdown Hill carefully placed the banner over the box and carried Richard III’s remains while the University team looked on, some detached, some uncomfortable, one member growing angry that they were treating the remains with such reverence when they had yet to be identified. It was an interesting display of the disparity between the two teams, and while the University was still clearly reserved, the Looking for Richard team had the right of it.
