Thank you. Most welcome. From where to you get your info?

These flags came from illustrations in, Hobilar, The journal of the Lance and Longbow Society, No 53.

Nice flags, but you've reflected the writing on the first, so on the left side it doesn't make sense.

On purpose I guess.

Mottoes were painted on. They would show through the silk the wrong way round on the 'obverse' side of the flag.

Yep! Connard Sage is correct, It was on purpose, exactly for the reason that he suggested.

I wouldn't worry too much, the flag will soon be dropped after a few rounds of bow, bill and artillery annihalation :)

Interesting, didn't know the mottoes were painted on.
