PostSubject: British Wagon 'flags'   British Wagon 'flags' EmptyFri Aug 30, 2019 10:05 am

Hi

I have opened my trap on a wargames Forum and said that somewhere, I have read that British wagons had flags or pennants' on them to indicate if they held Ammunition or other things.....

I think they were smallish square ones on the right front of the wagon......

Now for the life of me, I can't find where I have read it......

Does anyone know what colours where used for what things.....or have I can completely mad and dreamed it?

thanks

Simon

Simon,

Wagon identification pennants were square in shape.

Red = An ammunition wagon.

Blue = A Commissariat wagon.

Red (Upper) and White divided diagonally = Wagons attached to the Staff.

Red (Upper) and Blue divided diagonally = Royal Artillery wagon.

Red (Upper) and Green divided diagonally = Regimental wagon in this case the 24th.

Red (Upper) and Yellow divided diagonally = Wagons attached to locally raised units.

White with a Red Cross = Hospital wagons and Ambulances.

Any use?

Simon,

No problem, happy to help.

I’ll dig out some wagons photographs and see if I have any with flags.
