Field Chaplin altar banner
A scarce field chaplin's altar banner in beautiful condition, multi-piece construction, black cotton swastika and roundle on a felt background with the purple felt strip across the top edge, the whole banner is edged in twisted gold wire which continues as the hanging cord. Banner is backed by a quality backing material. Faint stain across white roundle, see pictures. Overall an item of some quality in both manufacture and display. Size approx 36cm across the top and a depth of about 39cm. Chaplin items do not come on to the market that often. This is fresh from a veteran who explained that this was aquired when a German chaplin and doctor surrended with wounded soldiers to the advancing Royal Tank Regiment in Northern France after the landings.
