    Btw, I must disagree with the idea that these were used as mine marker flags by the german army during ww2.
    Probably these were used by pow's for marking mines, but these were used as Gas flags by the german army until the end of the war..... (Very nice picture btw Damian )
    Despite the fact that no gas was used during the war, the Germans were very affraid gas was going to be used.... They continued in educating german soldiers in the use of gas masks etc ( I own some very late war german manuals which covers the use of gas suits etc etc)

    Hi Tom,
    Yes, I would agree with you on that. I remember when I went into the German tunnels which were used for dumping tons of German kit after the end of the German Occupation there were literally thousands of the red metal pennant holders all rusted together in piles. The pennants and the canvas or leatherette bags and presumably the ribbon had rotten away years before I got in there.
