Tales from Pendawar

Post by Penda » Sun Feb 14, 2021 1:34 pm

The first of my battalions of Native Infantry for the semi-imaginations Army of Pendawar, 1800-1805, using Perry Miniatures British in Egypt figures. These are the 2nd Pendawar Native Infantry. The flags were made for me by chum George Anderson to my suggested designs. As usual more over on my blog for the interested.
There is no point in being stupid if you don't show it!

A most Excellent start, always good to see an EIC flag flapping above a Regt or two :)

Interesting that the first ever American national flag of was that of the East India Company, whose tea they vandalised.

Nice looking unit, Mr P.

Also convenient for wargamers with EIC regiments (1801 and before) as the "Grand Union Flag" is easier to get ready printed. (It was never officially the flag of the USA though)

I was deliberately careful not to say that, but it is actually considered the first flag of the United States and the first navy ensign of that country (which was predominantly what "national" flags were for in those days, to identify ships at sea). It was first flown on the sloop Alfredin the Delaware River in December 1775 and was later hoisted outside Boston during the siege of 1775-1776. It was only replaced in late 1777 when Congress passed the Flag Act, substituting the field of 13 white stars on a dark blue field for the original Union canton, although the stripes could include blue, as well as red and white. The only real difference from the EIC flag was that the latter could have anything from 9 to 15 stripes.

Ummm the Pendawar is set in 1800 to 1805? Then the Union flag part is wrong. Doesn't get the St Patrick Saltire until 1807.

The EIC added it to their flags in 1801.
