  • Question with regards RDF Unit Flags.

    A lad I know via on-line communications recently posed the following comments:

    A question, all the old FCA / RDF flags are stood down and the RDF
    have new flashes, so why on Paddy's day in cork city have the
    military police RDF carry flags that are stood down I cant understand it.
    I never heard of this, is it some sort of a tradition in Cork?

    Well, the flags of all the past overseas missions were carried in the parade to mark the
    90th Anniversary of the Easter Rising in 2006. These too, would have been stood down
    at that point...

    Hedgehog might even recognise a couple of faces here, as it's the Vikings carrying the
    flags....

          The stood down flags are usually displayed in the bks church.

          The old 11thS&T flag has been paraded a couple of couple of times since being stood down but i don't have a clue of the protocol on such things.

          But AFAICR we used the old flag until it was replaced even though it was stood down.
