National Naval and Nautical Museum
Admiral Sir George Hope reported to the 1927 Annual General Meeting that the Society’s objective of promoting a National Naval and Nautical Museum was about to come to fruition, although its creation would be delayed for a further five years. It was to be sited in the Queen’s House at Greenwich, with the delay being the result of the Royal Hospital School not relocating for that length of time. He further outlines the historic relics that the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty were prepared to donate to the new museum. Professor Callender concluded the report by confirming that, on completion of the renovations, the Queen’s House would be handed over to the Trustees of the National Maritime Museum.
