1996 RN Plymouth Last Flag Officer Vice Admiral’s Flag & Crest


A unique very last 1996 Royal Navy Vice Admiral’s Command Flag and a Flag Officer Plymouth Crest that were presented to Commander Richard Goodfellow on the occasion of the ending of the position in Plymouth held by Vice Admiral Sir Roy Newman KCB.
At the ceremony the plaque and the flag were presented to Commander Goodfellow because of his role of the Vice Admiral’s Staff Officer.
The flag is an official issue with the multi-construction red cross on white and a red dot on the top left quarter. The cross and panels are all made of Linen type material, with the header edge in cream canvas. The header has a length of jute rope halyard and bronze attachment rings at either end. The maker’s ink stamp mark is PORTER BROS LTD – LIVERPOOL and VICE ADM. The condition is as new. The naval Ship’s crest on wooden shield backing shows a Vice Admiral’s Command Flag with the title above FLAG OFFICER PLYMOUTH. The crest is surmounted by the Naval crown. Above that is a small brass plaque with: PRESENTED BY VICE ADMIRAL SIR ROY NEWMAN K.C.B. Added to this are 2 name badges for Commander Goodfellow. Again, condition of the crest and badges are as new.
Nice piece of Plymouth Naval history.
