A set of colours which according to the plaque underneath, flew from October 1916 to March 1919 at Caldergrove Auxiliary Hospital. I'm not sure where that is. Hopefully someone will be able to provide more details of both that and VAD 36.

Caldergrove House was gutted by fire in 1983, although I believe that the house may have been rebuilt since then. Caldergrove House is now the address of a company named Advanced Construction Scotland.

I shall try and get in touch and see if I can visit and photograph the plaque, if it is still there...

They look to be a Union flag and a Red Cross flag.
