IT IS UPON THE NAVY

All young Naval Officers under initial training from the Royal Navy and those from Commonwealth and International Navies, who have stood on the parade ground at the Britannia Royal Naval College at Dartmouth, will have read the stirring words on the print below. They are carved into the stone on the top facade of the college that runs across the front of the astonishing building that Sir Ashton Webb designed and was opened in 1905. Thus, although the words are taken from the preamble to the Articles of War in the reign of Charles the Second, it is appropriate that they are shown with the image of ‘Britannia’ at the head.
