About the flag

The history of the Thames Motor Yacht Club is posted at http://www.tmyc.co.uk/p30/tmychist.htm. The TMYC is one of the oldest boating clubs on the River Thames. The flag shown above represents how the ensign (evidently) is currently portrayed.
Clay Moss, 16 July 2007

Their history does not record that the special ensign was granted in 1951, on the club's 21st anniversary, in recognition of the club's services during World War Two,
particularly at Dunkirk in 1940. Before 1969 when the name was changed, the club badge was different. The letters then were TMCC and, if I remember correctly, all on one line.

Variant flag

Jonathan Dixon sent me a recent picture of a TMYC ensign on a boat and the defacement is placed in the lower fly quarter. Also, the TMYC's website shows a small illustration of an ensign, with the defacement in the lower fly corner. This image represents how the ensign is illustrated in some publications and on a couple of websites that I have seen.


Burgee

Where the burgee is concerned, this represents the burgee as seen on the club's website and in another photo that Jonathan sent.

Thames Motor Cruising Club

[Thames Motor Cruising Club] image by Clay Moss, 7 December 2011,

The Thames Motor Yacht Club was formerly the Thames Motor Cruising Club. The old burgee can be seen at their website at http://www.tmyc.co.uk/tmyc/club. The old ensign itself can be seen at http://cgi.ebay.com/180624974256.

As it turns out the T of TMCC is the anchor, which probably is the reason for uncertainty about that, and the MCC is written in a straight line, with the T going through the first C. The ensign shows only the middle part of the burgee, which fills up the entire wreath.
