Other comments:
As can be seen, this design is in two basic parts:
First is the P.C.R., being the initials of " PAST CHIEF RULER ".
Second is the design and initials of the " Ancient Order of Foresters ".

This same sash has been seen with the SLINGSBY name woven on the front, although more usually, rather than weaving in their name, Slingsby tended to stamp it on the back of his silks, using ink. This was in the form of a large oval, and if the design was registered, with the Diamond Registration mark inside.
There is just such a stamping on the reverse of this sash, together with a Diamond Registration Mark. The name can be read around the outside of the oval, although sadly, none of the letters and numbers of the registration can be seen.
