Union Jack

Article about: I recently picked up this fantastic Union Jack flag, I don't know whether it is an early Australian flag or a British Union Jack but it is certainly old. It shows plenty of age, the material

    So this flag could be a Naval flag if it has Union Jack printed on it?
    Elementary my dear 'groper.....

    Hi and G'day Sandgroper, A year late and a dollar (Ausy) short. All of the RN flags that I have have one or more of the following stamps:
    1 Government this way up sign, an arrow.
    2 Manufacturer.
    3 Size (usualy followed by "YD).
    4 Date of manufacture.
    5 Flag title (Flag Union/Flag Ensign etc).
    6 RN or NATO Stock Number.

    Finally, the hoist is usually in the form of a brass cleat rather than a wooden togel. Although yours may well be military, I would be more likely to go for civil.

    Hope that this is of interest and use to you
    Regards Michael R
