HMS Striker Souvenir Pennant

A green felt example with an image of Striker's ship's badge and yellow lettering. Three vessels have carried the Striker name in the Royal Navy, but we have had it confirmed from Michael Harley in Australia this comes from the escort carrier 11, 420 tons, launched in 1942 on the Lend/ Lease Programme and returned to the USN in 1946. He tells us he lunched aboard with his Mother when she visited Sydney harbour around 1945 and he was presnted with an identical pennant from his uncle who was a memember of her crew! Generally good condition, but minor moth nibbles. It measures 18" (46 cm.)
