    Close but no cigar - a couple of banks in Melbourne and Sydney had Swastika floors in the 1920s

    And apparently it was popular for bridal outfits around the same time

    The war memorial at Brampton, near Chesterfield, unveiled on 18th September 1921, with the symbol referred to by the IWM war memorials site as being a fylfot. Covered over during WW2?

    In Hereford Cathedral, a section of the floor has inlaid swastikas.

    A wheel on a Vauxhall Crossland that came in our garage this week, does it or doesn't it look like a Swastika you decide ?

    Some local houses.
    Always wondered if they removed a few bricks over the doors when fashions changed...

    The Swastika was used by the Scouts Association as a 'Thank you' badge, prior to its links to Fascism.

    I'd heard of it years ago, but hadn't realised the variety of badges that Swastikas that were used on until I looked at your attachment. I am an ex-Scout and think that I heard through someone at my Troop.

    Where are the houses? I only ask as they look a little like the design of houses near where I used to live in Thorpe Bay, Essex.

    Leicestershire.
    Was looking at them again yesterday. Really do think they may have originally been full swastikas.

    Whilst looking for WW2 German playing cards I found these British ones from the 1920s.
