White Ensign

A British naval ensign made of wool bunting and hand-sewn. The White ensign probably belonged to Admiral Sir George St Vincent Duckworth King (1809-1891). It is marked 'BARGE JN 6/65'. One of a set of six flags with inscriptions suggesting they were allocated to various ships' boats. If 6/65 represents the date June 1865, they would have been issued just after the abolition of the squadronal system by order of 9 July 1864. After this date the Royal Navy abandoned the use of red and blue ensigns and pennants and wore white ensigns, pennants, command flags and broad pennants exclusively.

Original size: 1321 mm x 2210 mm
