Here's another weird item that I ended up with from a military surplus auction - a cotton signal flag meaning turn.
This is a well built sturdy piece with two naval bronze/brass bits of hardware a spring loaded snap and ring. Those pieces of hardware would be over $12.00 if you purchased them alone today.
The field/ground of the flag is nice weight cotton stripe in blue and white giving it a very nautical look, and the heading is a super heavy duty canvas material.
These would make a nice nautical decorative item to add to a cabin or beach house, or it might be a nice thing to recycle or up cycle in a purse or clutch.
