Yesterday’s flags...

I don’t think I have ever seen the full display  before (I have blipped the white ensign flying from the tower)  but apparently  it happens every year - the Nelson Monument in Edinburgh decked with flags for Trafalgar Day , which was yesterday.

The message could only be one thing, but whilst I worked that out as soon as I saw it walking to St Andrews House this morning, I didn’t realise that a third of the men who fought under Nelson were Scots , nor that so much of the war materiel came  from here.

This helpful piece from the Edinburgh Reporter gives the background and the details:
