RAF Staff Car Pennant
Acquired from the same source as the other example we have just listed, this one is constructed from man made fabric, with an embossed RAF roundel, so clearly a post war example. Like the other, these were flown from official RAF staff cars of Section or Station Commanders, of the ranks of Wing Commander and above.
The pennant is in flown condition, with some wear to the reinforced fabric, caused by flag pole and it also exhibits some staining and light soiling to the pennant surface. Our view is this adds to the authenticity of the item and unlike the many fake RAF ensigns currently listed on E bay we are happy to guarantee that this one has seen issued and seen RAF service. Measures 12.5"x5.75" (31.5 cm x 14 cm).If you are lucky enough to own an RAF staff car, this example being of lighter constructuion, will actually fly at a lower speed than the woven example also listed today.
