Original Ww2 Vintage Army Service Forces Flag Basic Training School Banner:
U.S. ARMY SERVICE FORCES Flag
A most interesting Flag in absolutely spectacular condition! It measures approximately 4 feet long by 3 feet high. (48" x 36") Dark-blue cotton base material with yellow fringe on three sides and then separately applied letters, number and emblem. Double-sided. I'm not exactly sure of the meaning of the BTS acronym, but I believe that it stands for Basic Training School. The red/white/blue star-like emblem in the center is that of the Army Service Forces, the entity responsible for the administrative, supply, and service activities of the War Department as a whole. I have had this item in my possession for donkey's years and I remember that it originally came from the estate of an 89th Infantry Division veteran in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Please note that what appears in the images as some sort of whitish residue on the dark-blue portion of the Flag is not residue at all. It is merely the reflection of the shiny gray epoxy garage floor that the Flag was on when I photographed it.
