National Naval and Nautical Museum

By Geoffrey Callender, published August 1927


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.
