Shirley's Flag was given to troopers of the Grenadier Guards, by the Whittle family including young Shirley, just before they embarked for Normandy. The Whittle's befriended the tank crew outside their house in Bedhampton, Hampshire. The original flag (and a replacement) travelled to near Bremen, Germany by VE Day - 8th May 1945.
