Flag Sale

I have sold the venerable old Union Flag - unearthed in a wardrobe - on Ebay. The winning bid was for £89, most gratifying.

It measured about 9' x 4½'.

There was much interest in it, with nineteen bidders and fifty "watchers".

I have bought another vintage Union Flag made of Hessian-type cloth, sewn constituent parts, un-faded bold colours, for £58 on the same auction site. It measures a more modest 6' x 3'.

The Malone Road's grandest house is for sale. It would be a good place to hang your flag - http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r=1&c=11120&s=132405342&i=8&p=ECSECS16194&fp=1&sort=h2l VC

Would that be the Weir? Someone from Kent purchased the flag!
