Right folks. Your flags are ready and look very posh. There double thickness. (Else the back of the embroidery would show).
10 inch high. 15 inch. Wide'ish.
Blue with yellow Mouse and glass. Yellow piping round the
edges. Piece of nylon string about two foot long either end. In a loop for some reason. but anyway theres plenty so cut it to suite.
Price £ 12-00

For the illustrious members who qualify and so wish. I can get embroidered. 1,000 on the bottom. ( This gets rid of the VAT I forgot about.) Very cheap.
£15. Each.

To keep it easy I've decided that it's ok to put works address on here. Not home address.

Again to keep it easy. Please send self addressed envelope (Big enough for flag.)
I've been to post office and weighed it. But dependes on weight of envelope.

41p Stamp covers most anything. First Class. May get away with 27p.

I'll order the flags in batches as cheques arrive. Payable to.

Will send a chq and SAE out today... will a std A4 size envelope be ok?

Not a 1000 qualifier... so will accept the non GL version!

Cheers,

Craig.

Just a thought. You had beter stick your User name on the envelope. So we can tick them off the list from PM's. And it might not be me that does it cos going to Portugul on 30th. Delivering flags.!! Like who the hell is Tax Collector, ToMo.
Or Long John Silver!! They will be having night mares when I get back.

Signalling all etiquette anoraks

This has probably been argued to death before but I cant be bothered to trawl through all the old posts. Where are we supposed to fly our illustrious new burgee from without offending the flag ettiquette police?
Cheque in the post, Haydn

Fly it from anyplace that we can all see it. Throw the other bugger away if it causes a problem!

Have you sent off Your Stamped. SAE and cheque. Yet.

Re: Signalling all etiquette anoraks

You can fly it anywhere you like except in a senior position to any club Burgee you are flying.
What have you got against flag etiquette or would you rather we had the maritime panache and style of a banana republic? Anyway behind every bit of flag etiquette there is sound practical reasoning.

Re: Signalling all etiquette anoraks

But Byron. He's all ready in the "club". This one. It's got to beat any thing as silly as the Royal Yacht club. This ones world wide, where as thats only in Cowes or where ever it is. And you can have any boat you want in this club. Or no boat at all. And No rules at all, except about beating up newbies, and some others that Kim makes up every now and then. But nobody takes any notice. Even come in the nude if you want. No body cares. So This Burgee can go at the top!!

Re: Signalling all etiquette anoraks

Actually a nice lime green ensign defaced with a big yellow banana sounds quite fetching, Byron. It always amazes me that flag etiquette causes such a fuss. I can see the point of flying the correct ensign and a courtesy flag in a foreign port but who really cares about where and in what order you attach house flags, burgees or whatever to your boat. IMHO there are worse things to worry about

Re: Signalling all etiquette anoraks

Flag etiquette incorporates good manners as well as practicality. If you don't feel that good manners is important then fair enuffski. If allowed to slip then how far does one allow it to slip? Maybe a Yacht Club that provided the RN with useful human material during WW1 & WW2 should have its earned Burgee flown under that of our new fun one. Having said that maybe we should all fly our initials at the mast like a guy called Nigel Carstairs did a decade or so back.

Re: Signalling all etiquette anoraks

Only that there are manners which are a matter of common decency and manners which are a matter of affectation and IMHO the more arcane requirements of flag etiquette are firmly of the latter type. I think your WW1/WW2 RN veterans would rather get a decent war pension than be assured that the burgee of a yacht club they can no longer afford to be a member of is superior to our upstart

Re: Signalling all etiquette anoraks

Mike, you must of course do as you see fit and I would be the first to stick up for your right to do so. Similarly respect us old salts who prefer to uphold tradition and allow us to 'TSK' away to our hearts content ;-)
