    Hanging it over the headboard?
    No...he's going to place it in the cabinet under the kitchen sink to absorb the water from the broken, leaky faucet.

    On the serious side...it is quite attractive !!

    The flag has been authenticated as the Regimental flag but was cut down for reasons unknown. I have been able to find the Vets name that brought it home, the flag was used at 814th reunions.

    Nice research. The good news is that it appears nothing was lost when it was cut down
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    A stunning and no doubt rare item. Is it double sided as a true flag or single side drape or wall hanging? I can't tell from the pics.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Jerry it’s double sided. I think I posted pictures of both sides, on one side the Batt. Crest is ever so slightly faded due to it being hung on a wall.
