Apollo 13 flown flag RR
This flag was on board Apollo 13’s “mission from hell” to the Moon. It has been signed by the crew of Apollo 13, Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert.
On the successful and miraculous return to Earth it was presented to Al bishop in gratitude for his help and friendship.
Al Bishop was a long term friend of many of the astronauts and was always happy to do them little services, often ones that required a certain amount of discretion,
He was later treated very badly, being made a scapegoat for the Apollo 15 flown cover debacle.
