    As it is only printed on one side and has no attachments to be flown, I wonder if this is actually something sold as a tea towel? The size is about right too. Here's a link to a similar product, except printed on cotton: Teatowel - Printed - Nauticalia 6135

    My first guess as well. It would be too flimsy
    to hoist in the wind.........

    I have the same one given to us from a War Veteran years ago and says it was from the the beaches of Normandy where he operated the rescue boat. I also uploaded a picture from Normandy where you can see the flag.Click image for larger version.

    Welcome,

    Sorry but no you don't. Yours from the crappy pics you supplied appears to be multi part construction not printed, though as you only show one side it is impossible to tell if yours has the design on both sides or not.
    Regards,

    What i mean is yours is not printed only on one side as the thread starter is, yours appears to be a double sided RN white ensign. It might be of the same design but is not the same type as the thread starter. when I say multi piece construction, that means it is made of lots of different pieces of cloth sewn together to make the flag rather than a printed design on a white backing.
    Regards,
