    no problems with that one is there.

    A very nice example of a flag not often seen anymore. Unfortunately, it was always easier for the Allied soldier to pull out his knife or bayonet and cut the ring loops instead of finding a screwdriver and dismounting the flag with the rings from the pole.

    Great flag. Didn't know they were that heavy (sadly never held one...)

    385 was first known as Warburg (August 1, 1937). In 1938 (date unknown) the Reichsjugendführung
    ordered the renaming into Nethegau. In January 1939 this was cancelled and it became Warburg again.
    In 1941 this Bann was again renamed as Nethegau and remained as such until the end of the war.

    Nice flag and indeed quite heavy. You should hold the Jungbann-flag. That one is even heavier due to
    the heavy eagle. A young flag bearer had a tough job, when carrying such flag onto a pole (and with
    windy weather). Most often such type of flag was in the possession of one of the bigger boys from the
    group.

    A great example. The construction of these flags is quite robust, once you've held a legitimate example in hand the fakes are quite poorly constructed in comparison. I regret selling the nice example I had from Altoona. Congratulations on this addition.
