Subject: Battle Flag (US Signal Corps)
A while back, when the net was hit and down for a time, I lost a posting I'd now like to repeat. And I'll say in advance that I want to suggest consideration of a (steady, men) SCA POLICY STATEMENT.|
John Schultz was reporting on a response he had made to a young trooper who had inquired about the (US) Signal Corps one-star Battle Flag. John explained it. But he then added that "we" don't use it out of respect for the men who earned it under the real fire of real bullets. We thereby honor their memories by not pretending.
John's thinking caught my attention (and produced a little lump in the throat) when I read that. What a noble thought! I wonder how the rest of you reacted?
What if this became the first SCA/SCARD "policy"--"SCA/SCARD does not endorse or encourage the use of the star Battle Flag in re-enactments unless an actual incident or individual is being represented." (You can put it in the proper SCARD language.)
What say you, bully boys? (And thanks for the thought, John.)
