Grand Opening of the Newly Refurbished Britannia Museum 1st May 2014

Having been made possible by the generosity of Windlass Sword Company, the grand opening of the newly refurbished Britannia Museum took place, following The Lord High Admirals Passing Out Parade on 1st May 2014. Originally opened in 1999 by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, the museum is housed in one of the former Cadet Gunrooms in Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth where it explores the history of Officer Training there. The newly refurbished museum was opened by Mr Robin Barlow, Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Devon and Her Majesty's representative, in the presence of Mr Pradeep Windlass, Chairman - Windlass Sword Company and several dignitaries from Britannia Royal Naval College, including Captain Henry Duffy RN and Commander Jason Phillips RNA OBE. As their official supplier of Royal Navy Officers Swords, Windlass Sword Company made a substantial and generous contribution to the college, which enabled them to fully refurbish the museum..
