Title: Flag for Loyal Tender
Post by: CGAux26 on November 26, 2009, 06:36:06 PM
What is the correct British flag for the Royal Navy Loyal class fleet tender?  They were Navy auxiliaries as I understand it.

It depends on which tender.
The RMAS Tenders (Buff and Black) had their own flag which was the RFA Blue Ensign defaced with 2 gold/yellow wavy lines under the anchor.
The RN Tenders flew the usual Red Ensign.

The LOYAL's with black hull and grey upperworks had the RNXS flag which is a blue ensign defaced with the splashing mine symbol.
The MANLY class were a white ensign
The tenders with black hull and yellow ochre upperworks  had a blue ensign defaced with the RMAS anchor
