Antique Union Jack from 1918
An antique Union Jack flag that was salvaged many years ago from an old village shop in Leicestershire, where it had laid since the end of WW1, unsold.
It was old stock intended for sale to be used for welcoming home the troops from battle. However it was removed from the shop, unsold when it closed in the 1980’s. Since then it has been stored in a drawer only being used in celebration in the village a few times.
It has a couple of holes (see photo), however otherwise in remarkable condition for its great age and the colours are very strong.
