Other comments:
This design was woven onto the right hand side of a long sash. The left hand side being reserved for various other designs to designate the official position of the wearer. The colours too of the overall sash changed with each of these designated official. This particular sash was for an " HONORARY MEMBER ".

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, and as this design was not registered, without the diamond.
