HMS Undaunted and Ike's Flag-- Part 1: Crudely Made


In the last post I mentioned that the HMS Undaunted had come to have the flag of General Eisenhower after it took him and other top military personnel off the HMS Apollo after it ran aground during the Normandy Invasion.

I have not been able to find a picture of it.  But a General of the Army flag would consist of four white stars on a red field.

From Wikipedia.

The flag of Eisenhower is now property of the National Trust for Scotland at Culzean Castle in Ayrshire, Scotland, in the Eisenhower exhibit along with some other items belonging to the general including his presidential flag, shirt, jacket and tie.  The flag is thin and crudely made.
