John,
Nice banners! Hadn't seen ones so colorful. Pics of more would be good too!

John,
Nice banners! Are they wartime or postwar?

Steve,

Very few of the Navy or Airforce are dated but they are no doubt wartime, a lot of the Army ones (photos soon) have dates.
For now here are the Airforce ones.

John,
I really like the Air Corps and Air Force ones. Let me know if you ever spot any duplicates! I searched for banner frames a while back. They sure aren't cheap! Do you display yours or store them?

Could you use regular frames and get creative with matting?

Luke,
That's a thought. Have to check that out. Between buying a decent long skinny frame and having a mat cut, I might be at the cost of a banner frame...? Thanks for the suggestion. Have to check out the costs.

As a retiree, if you are close to a mil. Post, most on-post frame shops I've been to will allow folks to take a short class and then do their own work.

Closest active duty base from me is NAS Lemoore and its about 75 minutes away. I found some reasonable
ones on Amazon.com.

OK here are the first of what I would call Army ones.

Steve. I have acouple of duplicates, as once or twice I have had to buy 2 to get one I don't have, & I do store them as I haven't room to hang them all.

Re: SIS USAAFE CB Ascot Park Brisbane

We had made up a banner which most likely never saw the light of day, but just possibly, do you have any reference to such? Had a group of pencils as major part of insignia.
