Not listed on UKNIWM (surprising that this major item has not been listed by now)

This is the White Ensign flown by HMS Rodney during the action that resulted in the sinking of the Bismarck.

Location is in Inch Parish Church at OS Map Ref: NX 100 603

Best I can manage is that the organist in Inch church thought that the Captain (or some other officer) was a member of Inch church.

Admiral Sir Frederick Hew George Dalrymple-Hamilton KCB (27 March 1890 26 December 1974) was the son of Col Hon. North de Coigny Dalrymple-Hamilton, MVO, of Bargany, Girvan, Ayrshire, and the grandson of the 10th Earl of Stair.
Inch Parish Church is adjacent to the Castle Kennedy Estate, the ancestral home of the Earls of Stair (The Dalrymples)

This is now on the WMR (ex UKNIWM)-as reference 71612.

This may well have been previously omitted because there has been much debate as to whether ensigns and such like really classified as war memorials.
