Discover the Hidden Value of Antique Royal Sailing Flags – David Harper

23rd November 2023

Two of King George V’s Sailing Flags from Royal Sailing Yacht Britannia have come onto the market. Each one accompanied by a black edged letter on Buckingham Palace writing paper dated 10th July 1936 (one a copy) saying ‘Dear Sir, I am commanded by the King and Queen Mary to send you these flags which were flown on board “Britannia” at various times during her career, including one of her racing flags. Their Majesties hope you will like to keep these in your club house as souvenirs of the old yacht. Yours Derek Keppell, Master of the Household, The Commodore, Royal Portsmouth Corinthian Yacht Club.” Provenance: Royal Naval Club & Royal Albert Yacht Club, Portsmouth
