'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
Last Entry - For God's sake look after our people.'
In memory of Capt. Robert Falcon Scott, Edward Wilson, Henry Bowers, Lawrence Oates and Edgar Evans. South Pole Expedition, 30th March 1912.
If i had the money for it, then i would buy it. Just for the historical importance of this flag.
Condition is of minor importance when it comes to very important historical objects like this.

Peter Whammond also sold an example which had some minor condition issues such as small stains and whatnot and it sold on the Collector's Guild site here:

I do not know what Craig Gottlieb got for his example, but it can be seen here:
Deutschland Erwache Standard
and finally Jeff Clark has one in his archives as well, which I'm sure went for a small fortune considering his clientele:

Thank you once again for the positive response.
I just asked my wife to buy it for me for Christmas. .....don't know why......but she said no 😠
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
Congratulations on buying a very rare and desirable item.
