To my Colleagues from across the Pond,
I am looking for advise in obtains a small supply of RN ensigns, say about 8 by 11 inches in size.
A while back, while engaged in a research project relating to Bar Harbor, Maine, I came across information about RN Able Seaman John Arthur Cornish from HMS Scarborough, a Hastings class,who died here following surgery for appendicitis in the local hospital on August 16, 1931. Able Seaman Cornish is buried here in Bar Harbor at the Ledgelawn Cemetery. While attempts have been made in the past to honor the Seaman, I have not seen, nor been able to find a RN ensign with which to honor his grave site, something done here traditionally each Independence day and Navy day, for quite some time.
I am hoping someone across the way might have a suggestion as to where a might be able to purchase a few ensigns to reserve for the Seaman's marker.
