TSLAC 306-4058
Unidentified Unit

This flag is thought to have belonged to an infantry unit. At some point in its history a black cross with a white ribbon was added to the flag, probably as a symbol of mourning. It is unknown whether the decoration was added during the war to memorialize a fallen officer, or after the war to mark a veteran's passing.
