Great stuff! I'm really happy with it, knowing a bit more about the flag is even better, thanks for all your advice and help gents, much appreciated!
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.
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
