Force 135 liberation Guernsey Flag 75th Photo Scene
Force 135 was a combined military and naval flotilla tasked with liberating the Channel Islands from the German occupation during World War 2. Guernsey and Jersey were liberated and freed on 9th May 1945. The other islands were liberated soon afterwards.
To commemorate the 75th Liberation of Guernsey and Jersey, we have commisioned a series of collectible items to treasure, honouring both the liberating troops within Force 135, and the Islanders that had endured years of occupation.
This is a series of Flags to collect, Each Flag depicts a photograph, painting or saying of the actual day of Liberation in Guernsey May 9th 1945, and is available in different sizes as a Polyester lightweight flag, that will flutter in the lightest of breezes. This quality Flag is colourfast so will not fade, and is double edged stitched to resist fraying. The left hand seam will also have two rust proof grommets to allow flagpole rigging to be attached. Photos may be quite grainy quality in the larger print sizes when viewed close up, due to the actual image taken on the day and the limited photographic resources during the occupation.
These flags are manufactured to order and will take two to three weeks for delivery so please plan ahead if purchasing for a liberation event. This is the 3x2ft flag size as standard, but you also have the full flagpole size of 5x3ft available to select.
