Sub-collection: Decatur Collection of Military & Naval Service - Spanning 100 years

48 Star U.S. Ensign from U.S.S. Decatur (DD-936) commissioned on 1954.
This wool ensign was from the Decatur Grouping of flags and was mistaken at auction as an indentified WWI US ensign. However further inquiry has uncovered that it is, in fact, the US ensign from the 1950s which was used at the christening of the US Decatur in 1955.
