The Colour deteriorated over time, however, a 3 year effort by the St Cuthberts saw the it being restored. 89 years lated it was re-dedicated
The Colour was re-dedicated at a ceremony on 5th July 2009, with the escort being provided by members of 204 (Tyneside Scottish) Battery Royal Artillery (V), and the Tyneside Scottish Branch of the Royal Artillery Association.
