J003975 PILOT'S NATIONAL FLOTATION FLAG. An approximately 74cm x 100cm, fine white silk flag with a 60cm diameter red "Himaru" printed to its center. Short, white cotton tie-cords are to two of its corners, where triangular reinforcements may also be seen, and a tunnel loop runs along all of its sides, within which are evenly distributed sections of buoyant kapok (the same material used in their life-jackets). Several small picks to the material, and some light stains, are noticeable. Of Note: Used as a marker for downed airmen, these light weight, thin silk flags required almost no space to store, and were normally carried in the special pocket found to the lower right front panel of most life-jackets. Rare.
