    Should we not fly this on October 14th to Commemorate the Battle of Hastings and those who fought and died for England.

      I agree with John. It maybe over 950 years ago, but was still a battle fought to the last for England, and should be commemorated by flying the flag they died under.

    I fully agree, we have a great heritage and should be proud of it and our ancestors.
