If you know one thing about the 2nd national its that it was replaced because when hanging limp in the wind it could be mistaken for a flag of truce with the canton either concealed in its folds or obscured from a distance. Hence why it had to be updated to the 3rd national shortly before the end of the war. But every time I hear and see this story recounted I never seem to hear specifics. Does anyone have knowledge, documents, etc of specific engagements where the 2nd national was mistaken for a flag of surrender? If anyone does I'd love to read it, thanks.
