Maori war flag

Postby JasonUbych » 19 Mar 2015 09:20

A Maori war flag that has been held in the collection of a Scottish Borders museum for more than 90 years could be repatriated; http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-s ... d-31947810

Thought this may be of interest.

An interesting request. I am really not in favour of these "PC" returns of artefacts. However, if no one objects, why not?

All the best,

Gary
