Re: need suggestions on how to make signal flags for flag bags
Allot of the old photos I'm seeing of several Fletcher class Destroyers underway during the war it looks like their flag bags are open as you can see the openings in the black and white photos. I am guessing they had them open in case they needed to signal other ships in the convoy's at any moment in case of action. Not sure?
If I remember correctly... the flag bags on my ship (DLG-20) stayed covered most of the time until they were needed. Attached the halyards to the front of the bags on the hook bars and use tissue or whatever to cover the top of the bags. Just an opinion. HTH.
