Royal Air Force Association Ensign
A good original flown example manufactured by Ernest W.Perrett under the registered trade mark ‘Excelsior’. Our research indicates by 1927 their works was established on the site of an old chapel in Canning Town London and was replaced by the Beulah Gospel Hall where the Excelsior Works of Ernest Perrett Ltd, flag makers operated from. The premises was badly bomb-damaged in the Second World War. Subsequently the works were relocated to Holloway Road, London N7. The ‘Comrades of Royal Air Force Association’ was formed as a single organisation dedicated to the welfare of serving and ex-serving RAF personnel in 1933 and Lord Trenchhard was the first President. In 1943 the name was changed to simply ‘The Royal Air Force Association’ or ‘ RAFA ’. Our ensign measures 70” x 36 ” (178 cm x 92 cm) and is in excellent display condition with minor staining and one small moth nip. Whilst the flag is printed, the RAFA logo is a separate panel sewn in, as is the Union flag in the corner. It comes complete with it’s original hanging line, and wood toggle.
