    Absolutely gorgeous! I mean it. I seems to be Water Police and may have been used on a water craft. There may have been cotton bunting over the "hoist edge" with a looped rope underneath or with metal clips attached, once upon a time. That piping is great too. I think it should be displayed with the rest of my Polizei items, thank you. Har, har! Thanks for sharing though!

    congrats and thanks for sharing

    Hi Ronnie/Guys, sorry but this is an old fake. These actually date from the 1980's. The problems with this are:

    Oval wreath to the swastika
    Round head to the eagle
    Short body to the eagle
    Pronouced acorns on the wreath

    Lack of wire stiffener to the pennant itself.

    These came in a whole range of colours.

    Cheer, Ade.
