    Many museums now have virtual exhibits which are worth watching:

    Very interesting! Thanks for the link.

    I have a large red ensign from the family of William Pittman of Shelbourne county. He served aboard the HMCS Niobe and died onboard in 1920. I was told the flag accompanied his body to shore but it looks like the flag was well used(flown) before it was handed to the family.
