Banners of dead admirals, Britannia Royal Naval College
Hanging above the Chapel Flat outside the chapel are banners of Knights of the Bath. The banner (size 6 feet by 6 feet), crest and mantling of each GCB (Knight Grand Cross) hang above his stall in the chapel of the order in Westminster Abbey until his death when they are returned to his family. These banners of admirals have been given to the college by the families; the banners remain here until they disintegrate.
Britannia Royal Naval College :: SX8751
Britannia Royal Naval College is the main establishment training Naval officers. It was built at Dartmouth in 1905, designed by Sir George Aston Webb. From 1863 the training hulks Britannia and Hindostan were moored on the river; when these wooden ships became unsuitable nearby land was purchased as a base.
