British Union Flag (post 1801 pattern)
The colour of the naval brigade of HMS 'Euryalus' carried during an attack on Japanese batteries in the strait of Shimonoseki. It is accompanied by a brass plate reading: 'THE COLOUR CARRIED BY MR DUNCAN GORDON BOYES, MIDSHIPMAN HMS EURYALUS 6TH SEPTEMBER 1864 ON WHICH OCCASION HE GAINED THE VICTORIA CROSS'. The colour is made of crepe woven silk, with a canvas hoist. It is hand-sewn with a cord and tassel attached. The flag was said to have been pierced by six musket shots and was originally displayed in a glass case.
