To follow on from our early blog regarding Cinderford’s anniversary pennant (read story in full here) we now have some beautiful images of the new standard in action. The new standard has now completed its dedication and is in full use for ceremonial events.
The Standard was part of the branches 75th anniversary celebrations, which there is more on below. The standard itself looks fantastic and I’m sure it will be well cared for by this wonderful Royal British Legion Branch. Here is too many more years of success for the Branch and we hope their new standard exceeding expectations. Congratulations to all at the Cinderford British Legion Branch on 75 years of success!
75th Anniversary Pennant
This year’s Remembrance Sunday proved a very special one for one branch of the Royal British Legion. The Cinderford Branch were able to mark the day of remembrance by also adding the 75th anniversary pennant to their standard.
The branch really splashed out to commemorate their 75th birthday, commissioning a new RBL standard alongside the extra pennant. The pennant is created in a beautiful heraldic polyester in gold with RBL blue lettering. The branch actually started back in 1921 meaning it is fast approaching its 100th birthday! Hopefully Cinderford will pop back to see us for their 100th birthday celebrations too.
Miss Heather Harris, branch secretary commented “Thank you for the pennant and the new Standard. We were able to put the pennant on our Standard for Remembrance Day, which was great. We now have to have the new Standard dedicated, which will be in the New Year.”
Miss Harris continued “The ordering process was very easy. Thanks to all the staff for their work in producing these pieces for Cinderford.” Flagmakers would like to take this opportunity to thank Miss Harris, for her kind words and choosing us to create their beautiful new standard.
