Its a bit like waiting for a bus! Today there are two installments!

These gorgeous Caravan Club pennants were amongst a massive tangle of flags purchased from Merton Abbey Car boot, situated by the river Wandle in deepest South London. In the late 1800s William Morris had produced textiles for Libertys on the site, but back in the Nineties, it was other peoples junk, that got me out of bed in the morning !

The four Caravan Club flags featured here are for The B.H.M.D.A (Buckingham Hertfordshire & Middlesex District). Each District would have a number of meetings each year, for which they would produce a flag.These very graphic versions date from the early 1970s. They now take pride of place at home.
