It does open out Bernard but you mustn't pick anything with this.


Is it for retrieving a rugby ball from a scrum?
Nope not a ball picker

Without knowing the exact size of the thing, could it be an early medical device for widening arteries or other internal passages?



Simon I think I know what you might have in mind, those particular devices if they did exist beyond barrack room horror stories make me wince.:shake:


But no its much larger, the pole is for carrying it.

Is it for signalling? I can see now that when opened up it is not like an umbrella but appears to be a circle of fabric.


Very good Richard spot on.

There were several variants of construction & use detailed here. Can anyone explain these? There was also a purpose more basic than communicating although in the broadest sense it is also communication.App3822b.jpg
