Canadian Red Ensign
Canada fought under the Red Ensign during the First World War. The provincial crests sewn onto this one place its date of manufacture around 1870-1898, although occasionally older flags were not updated with the crests of new provinces. Private James Davidson carried this flag throughout the First World War, including the Battle of Vimy Ridge (1917).
