House flag, W. France, Fenwick & Co. Ltd
The house flag of W. France, Fenwick & Co. Ltd, London. A red rectangular flag with a blue cross and a white rectangle placed over the centre of the cross. The flag is made of a wool and synthetic fibre bunting. It has a cotton hoist and is machine sewn. A rope and toggle is attached.
Fenwick & Co. was an old established shipping company engaged in the Australian wool trade from 1834 and later in the East Coast coal trade. They merged with William France of Goole, a company that also owned colliers in 1901. During the early part of the 20th century they built up a fleet of deep sea tramps in addition to their colliers. Both these trades were in recession by 1975 when the company was wound up.
