628 HQ Guidon


Recommended Posts

I've always wanted one of theses, so check it off the list. I find that guidons are more "personal" than other flags and maybe that is where my interest is based. Anyway, it came locally and not from a dealer. QM tag is present and is dated 1942.

Very nice, I agree these flags hold a great amount of history.

 

be careful though, it can be habit forming...

Well every unit had one,

But most were supposed to be Officially turned in upon disbandment of the unit.

Many were presented to the Sgt or unit commander on retirement.

So the answer are "a lot" and "not that many".

I do have about 50 in my own collection.
