I would lkke to present a nice flight trumpet banner for the city of Werl, where Field Marshal Albert Kesselring was

imprisoned postwar for war crimes. During the war there was a reasonable Luftwaffe presence there.....

Hi Bob,

How far apart are the ties on the flag if you don't mind me asking?

Would it fit a fanfare trumpet?

Cheers

Jock:)

Hi Jock

Yes it is for a fanfare trumpet, the ties are approx 37 CM apart.

Hope this helps,

Best wishes

I would love to see some photos of them Jock if possible ??

I have seen trumpet banners with the tyes, and also with clips too, I guess there would be slight variations in the

lengths of the hangers etc, I only have the one, so can't really show any other variations.

Best wishes

Bob,

They are a bit tall to try and photograph, hope this will do.

The top one has a shorter distance for the hangers, approx 35cm.

Superb stuff ! Robin your Pz. Rgt. 8 banner has left me all sweaty ! Magnificent !!

I am not sure if you guys are aware of it or not, but Shawn Southern in the US is doing a book on musical instruments and other band

related items as well, he would love to see these photos I am sure. I can pass on his e-mail address if you like.....

(Shawn has some fantastic trumpets too Jock, and I am sure he would love to see these).

Bob,

I doubt your mate is struggling for pictures but if he has to rely on me taking them then he is on a hiding since it is not an area I am that good at, certainly not for a reference book anyway.

Robin,

Nice stuff and a lot of it too.

Oh my goodness!! My husband showed me the banner and the embroidery, but he didn't show me those fanfare trumpets!!!!

Jock, if you would be so kind, what are the makers on those fanfare trumpets? I am a trumpet and bugle player, so I am really really interested in researching them a bit.

I just informed Paul R. that I want one!!

None of them are maker marked and they are all slightly different in construction and sadly only one is completely without damage or repair.

It would seem that they all fail at the similar points where the brass bars are connected to give it some rigidity.

Very nice Jock.

Here is another trumpet banner, it just sold on the WAF's for sale section (US), and sadly not to me, but a nice

one with a little bit of damage to the fringe, for Bad Aibling.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
