Garage
Right on. Was it painted to look fractured or is that door actually damaged like that.

The white broad(wide) part should be on the top with the flag against the flag post

Flying it with the narrow white part on the top and near the flag post is a sign of military distress to the British troops, ie captured outpost. Your enemy who captured you and setting an ambush would not know this.

Isn't 'back lane' a euphemism for something, or am I thinking of another phrase?

Okay. I see. Thank you very much. Our U.S. flag is not so subtle.
