British Rail Corporate Identity :: Double Arrow Pt.II







“Flags should not be dry cleaned, nor should they be left raised overnight, but taken down at dusk, dried and rolled (not folded and stored).” You heard the man, I mean the manual.

Pt.II of this BR Double Arrow series featuring words of advice from Basic Elements: House flag for general use on land from January 1966 (image 2 above), as part of the British Rail Corporate Identity Manual, Binders 1/2/4/7.

A special symbol for Accident Prevention Service (January 1966) and livery for the MV Hengist / MV Horsa as part of Section 7 (Ships) from January 1974 form but a smidgen of this extensive branding project spanning well over twenty years.
