I am sort of a WWII amateur historian specializing in military equipment. Mainly German as my father's side of the family came from Bavaria in the 1890's. In fact my screen name, Royal Tiger, is the Allies name for the Panzkerkampfwagen VI Ausf. B Konigstiger, or King Tiger. The first 50 had turrets built by Porsche, the rest used a Henschel turret. My main focus is armor and aircraft, but the Naval banners have always held an appeal to me. The one I use as an avatar is a Kreigsmarine flag from the 1920's. There was a more formal version where the flag I used moved to the upper left field:

Very cool. I'm kind of into flags. I knew that had been used for a few purposes. I inherited a lot of the different US and Swedish flags from my grandfather when he passed.

Back on subject:

Do you have the Swedish "3 crown" flag? It's the symbol used by the Swedish Air Force since the 1930's:

Nice thread...
Hope, I'll join sometimes.
My wife has left me after serious motorcycle crash (I was alone). She said "You're f*ckin idiot, you can not give me what I need, you are just a stupid engineer and can not earn more money..."
That was hurt... but now I am an adventure rider (that time I was just "biker")))

You would love the reenactment we ran into at Michaux State forest this fall.

Yeah, because if Leyland used that name later on for a bus in Australia it never happened. Thanks to ford the North American P-51 Mustang was a myth.
