"What are the Colours?"

"Not an old rag, but a flag, and I'll buy it!"

I actively pursue old original embroidered military unit flags, from all nations and periods. After nearly thirty years of hunting my collecting, acquired examples range from as early as a 1761 Highland Regiment hand made in Royal Court of England's King George III, to a combat captured flag from Panama's General Noriega's office. Also seeking unit flag related items; such as poletops, photos of flags being paraded, parade programs, as well as other issued flag related items, like canvas cover flag bags. For an example listing of typical "wanted" parade programs, just click... HERE

So the Colours are...

"A moth eaten rag, on a worm eaten pole, doesn't seem likely to stir a man's soul. But it's the deeds that were done beneath that moth eaten rag, when that pole was a staff, and that rag a battle flag."
