Extant British Blanket c. 1776

Note the two single yarn blue stripes along the edge,
faded broad arrow and GR cipher.

                   This blanket is in the collections of the Duxbury Rural and Historical Society, donated by the descendant of Captain Gershom Bradford. Check out the entire blog post:  Evacuation Day and a Discarded British Blanket at Historical Digression.
