National flag of the USA (1896-1908)
USA national flag 1896-1908 pattern. The flag is made of wool bunting with forty five cotton stars applied in the canton. It is machine sewn. The hoist is made of linen with brass grommets at the top and bottom.
The flag was presented to St Bartholomew's Hospital by Admiral Sir Hugh Watson (1872-1954) in 1931. Hugh Watson commanded the river gunboat 'Woodcock' in 1898 in China and he was in that country at the time of the Boxer War in 1900. This flag may have been acquired by Watson at this time, as both the USA and Germany were involved in the suppression of the Boxers see AAA0459 and AAA0503.
