A little harsh no?  And btw - it's not white hair it's a sign of wisdom.  Fireplace still works.

It would seem to make sense to consider the Past Commodores (assuming they completed full term) in the same light as Commodores in which case the flags (or are they burgees) should only be flown in other clubs waters when the officer is on official Club business (which I would include leading / participating in a rendezvous / Club Cruise). Otherwise they should revert to flying the standard Club burgee

Etiquette rules that I can find are explicit on current Flag officers flags - but I can't find and references to past Commodore's flags
