royal cypher, the St Edward's crown, as well as the name of the service. The

This flag is not only flown at Chester House, but is also carried by the
Mounted Troop on ceremonial occasions. Furthermore, it is also displayed inside
at least one police station in the Greater Manchester area, at Salford. Kath and
I saw this in Salford Quays about ten years ago.
