Between the links of this chain, one sees the letters S and H with an antler and a double cross. With the pendant at the bottom, these refer to Saint Hubert, patron saint of militia companies. The links with arms are those of the governors of the Guild of Saint Hubert, established in The Hague in 1542; these were added later.
