Can someone please help me identify the flag in this photo?

Postby Tracey » 23 Jul 2015 08:21

This photo was amongst my grandfathers photos, but I have no idea who they are or when or where it was taken. I though a good start might be to try and identify what the flag represents. Would really appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.

These look like army signaling flags for signaling morse code messages.
There were two types, plain blue for use against a pale background, and white with a blue stripe for use against a dark background.
This suggests the photo could be of a group of signallers.
