An original WWII 1942 Royal Navy White Ensign, made by Arthur Smart & Sons in Manchester and stamped with a Broad Arrow mark, identifying it as a military item. Considering that it is nearly 80 years old and has been used at some point, it is in remarkably good condition – it’s grubby with a few thin patches and marks, but it’s not musty and the colours are fresh and vibrant. Fly it on special days!
Please note, the flag is printed not stitched – there was a war on and there was no time to make fancy flags!
DO NOT WASH THIS ITEM – we never recommending washing flags; often they used vegetable dyes and a washing machine may make the colours run.
