PREFACE. 



In the Compilation of this Catalogue I have endeavoured to 
provide, in as concise a form as possible, a book which will be of 
general historical interest to the many thousands of Visitors who 
annually come to see the Museum. 

Having regard to the nature of the Museum (especially the vast 
field of Naval and Military History which it covers), the limited 
space, and the consequent necessity of having at times to' remove 
certain objects in order to exhibit others, it was found quite impos- 
sible to classify the numerous exhibits under groups or collections : 
but the index, which has been added, is of an exhaustive nature 
and will assist the Visitor in readily finding the objects of special 
interest. 

I would point out that the value of a work of this kind lies 
in its accuracy, and should any mistakes have crept into its pages 
in the course of compilation and printing, I hope they will be 
pointed out to me, that they may be rectified in future editions. 

In the first edition of this Catalogue I was greatly indebted to 
the assistance which I received from Mr. B. E. Sargeaunt, formerly 
Assistant Secretary of the Institution, and now Treasurer to the 
Government of the Isle of Man. Commander W. F. Caborne, 
C.B., R.N.R., has also rendered me much valuable help in 
describings the! Naval Exhibits, and Mr. A. N. A. Pinhey, the 
Assistant Secretary and Curator, has assisted me generally.

History of the Museum and Building. 



The Royal United Service Museum, which is under the 
control of the Council of the Royal United Service Institution, was 
founded by His Majesty King William IV. on 25th June, 1 83 1 , it 
then being known as "The Naval and Military Library and 
Museum." Its home was originally Vanbrugh House, situated in 
Whitehall Yard, a house designed and built by Sir John Vanbrugh 
out of the ruins of that portion of Whitehall which was destroyed 
by fire. 

In 1833 the Government, at the express instance of the 
Sovereign, and with a due consideration of the public utility and 
benefit likely to result from the establishment of the Institution, were 
pleased to grant it the use of a more spacious building. This 
consisted of the former office of the Board of Works situated in 
Inner Scotland Yard the two buildings being connected by a 
passage which led to a small house, on the site of which the lecture 
theatre was built in 1849-50. 

In 1895 the Museum was transferred to its present building, 
which is the Banqueting House of Old Whitehall Palace, a 
building sentimentally and historically connected with the life of the 
English nation. In the reign of James I., the old Palace of White- 
hall had become so ruinous, the greater part having been destroyed 
by fire in 1 589, that it was determined to rebuild it, and the 
splendid structure which now contains the Museum is a part of the 
original design by Inigo Jones, to whom the building was entrusted. 



Horace Walpole says : "The intended Palace of Whitehall, if it 
had been carried out, would have been the most truly magnificent 
and beautiful fabric of any of the kind in Europe." The Banquet- 
ing House, so called from having been placed on the site of the 
apartments called by that name erected by Queen Elizabeth, was 
commenced in 1619, and completed in 1622, at a cost of about 
1 6,000, the stone for the building having been drawn from the 
quarries at Portland. Charles I. commissioned Rubens to paint the 
ceiling ; it is divided by a rich frame-work of gilded mouldings into 
nine compartments, with allegorical subjects. The centre one 
represents the apotheosis of James I. ; on either side of the ceiling 
are oblong panels expressing the Peace and Plenty, Harmony and 
Happiness, which, according to the painter's fancy, signalised the 
reign of James I. ; and in the other compartments Rubens* patron, 
Charles, is introduced in scenes intended to represent his birth, 
and his coronation as King of Scotland ; while the oval compart- 
ments at the corners are intended, by allegorical figures, to show the 
triumph of Virtue over Vice. Rubens was paid by Charles I. the 
sum of three thousand pounds and received the honour of knight- 
hood for his work, in which, according to Sir Godfrey Kneller, he 
was assisted by Jordaens. The sketches were made in England, 
probably on the spot, but the actual painting was executed and 
completed in Antwerp in the year 1635. 

The Ceiling has been five times restored. In the reign of 
George II. by Kent; in 1785 by Cipriani; in 1837 under the 
direction of Sir Robert Smirke (when the entire building was 
restored at a cost of 1 5,000 by Sir John Soane) ; again at a later 
date in the 1 9th century ; and finally in the years 1 906 and 1 907. 

In July, 1 906, by direction of the First Commissioner of His 
Majesty's Office of Works, a close inspection was made of the Roof 
and of the Ceiling, with a view to all necessary repairs being 
carried out. 




THE CEILING OF THE BANQUETING HOUSE, 

painted by Rubens, and completed in 1635. 

(Frtm thi Engravinf 1) GrUilin.) 



T The oil-paintings, in places, were scarcely discernible from the 
floor owing to their dirty condition and to their uneven surface (the 
pictures were held up at intervals by canvas bands and this caused 
an irregular surface resembling that of a quilt). The light, too, acting 
on the uneven surface, gave the paintings the appearance of being 
damp. The pictures were suspended by iron hangers screwed to the 
tie beams of the roof : these iron hangers were locked into iron 
plates fixed on to the picture frames and on to the battens across 
them. The hangers were at intervals of about four or five feet. The 
backs of the picture frames were covered with an old-fashioned 
oilcloth to keep the paintings free from dust. The pictures 
were attached to the frames and battens at the back by pieces 
of canvas twisted round them at intervals of about three feet. 

Upon the report being referred from the Office of Works to 
the Treasury, a sum of money was granted in November, 1 906, for 
the restoration of the Rubens paintings and for the repairing 
regilding, and renovation of the ceiling. The Museum was closed 
to the Public, and a scaffolding, extending to the Ceiling, was 
erected from the floor in November, 1 906. When the paintings were 
taken down from the Ceiling, upon examination, some of them were 
found to be in very bad condition, the canvas in many cases being 
broken away from the attachments on the frames. Before taking 
the paintings off the frames, they were properly cleaned and made 
pliable, and covered over with tissue paper. After being taken off 
the old frames they were found to be attached to another 
canvas. On the back of this second canvas was a coating of what 
appeared to be glue and finely powdered glass, evidently put on 
as an attempt to stiffen the paintings and to prevent the sagging 
which was so visible from the floor. This old lining canvas was 
taken off and the backs of the paintings were scraped to remove all 
foreign substances which had adhered to them ; the canvas was 
very carefully repaired, and the paintings, each one going through 



the same process, were carefully rolled up for safety whilst the 
frames were being repaired. 

When the old frames were exposed, they were found to be 
in a very dilapidated and worm-eaten condition, but it was decided 
that it would be better to retain them than make new ones, 
owing to the difficulty in procuring properly seasoned wood for such 
large frames. The old frames were carefully repaired and the 
worm-eaten parts were, painted with a solution to kill the worm in 
the wood, and new timber intermediates were put in to strengthen 
the old wood. Owing to the damage done to the paintings by 
the original method of attachment to the frames, it was deemed 
advisable, after careful consideration, that they should be fixed in a 
different way, so as to obviate the sagging. One of the oval frames 
was prepared accordingly in the following manner : 

The frame was repaired and strengthened as before described, 
and the face planed down to a level surface. Laminated boarding 
half-an-inch thick and consisting of five pieces of wood, the outside 
boards being maple, was then screwed on to the frame and the 
intermediates with brass screws. These screws were countersunk 
and covered with a stopping used by picture restorers. Where the 
joints of the laminated boarding butted together, similar stopping 
was used and the face was carefully sandpapered until a smooth 
surface was obtained. This boarding was then covered with a 
strong canvas pasted down to it by means of hot irons, the canvas 
being then nailed to the edges of the frame. When this frame 
was completed it was kept for a time to see if there was any 
movement in the laminated boarding ; it was then submitted to a 
Committee of Experts. 

After various meetings and consultations it was decided to 
prepare the whole of the frames m this manner and to fix the 
paintings direct to this flat surface, and so prevent the sagging 



9 

aspect which the pictures previously possessed, and which was 
so detrimental to their appearance. 

The paintings were then unrolled and after composition had 
been pasted on the back of the canvas they were carefully ironed 
until they adhered to the frames, which had been prepared and 
finished in a similar manner to the oval one, already described. 

The tissue paper was then removed from the face of the 
paintings, which were stopped and touched up with colour where 
cracked and damaged. This was a work requiring great care and 
patience ; when all the damaged portions had been restored the 
pictures were varnished. 

As each painting was finished it was hoisted up on to the 
scaffold and then fixed to the roof timbers with iron hangers as 
originally attached. When the frames were repaired and 
strengthened it was found the laminated boarding added con- 
siderably to their weight. The oval pictures, when completed, 
weighed 8 cwt. each, they are 7 ft. 10 ins. wide and 1 9 ft. 2 ins. 
long ; the square pictures, 1 3 tons each, are 18 ft. 2 ins. wide and 
24 ft. 8 ins. long ; the large oval centre picture, 2\ tons, is 20 ft. 
8 ins. wide and 32 ft. 1 in. long ; the side panels, 1 ton each, are 
7 ft. 1 1 ins. wide and 39 ft. 7 ins. long. Thus the nine pictures 
and frames weigh nearly nine tons. 

The work was carried out under the direction of His 
Majesty's Office of Works. 

The restoration of the pictures was commenced in December, 

1 906, and completed in August, 1 907. In September and October, 

1907, the entire Hall was repainted, on the completion of which 
the Museum, which had been closed to the public since November, 
1 906, was re-arranged and re-opened in December, 1 907. 



In the Banqueting House were held some of the many fetes and 
masques of the time of James I., whose bust by Le Sueur stands at the 
northern end ; and it was used for like revelries in the days 
preceding the Civil War. On that chill Tuesday morning of the 
30th January, 1649, His Majesty King Charles I. walked firmly 
between the files of soldiers from his last night's resting place in St. 
James's Palace, where he had been from noon on Saturday, to the 
Green Chamber of Whitehall Palace. Here he was allowed to be 
alone for some time with the faithful Juxon, who gave him the 
Sacrament. Thence he passed through the Banqueting House, and 
out of a window, on to the scaffold in the open street. An 
inscription on brass has been placed in the hall to recall the tragedy. 

It was in this building that Cromwell in 1 657, in addressing the 
Parliament which he had summoned, made his famous speech 
declining the Crown which had been offered to him by a party of 
his, adherents. And m this hall, on the Restoration, Charles II. 
received the felicitations of both Houses of Parliament, while they 
received from him assurances of future well-doings. 

When James II., restless and uneasy, was waiting for what he 
must have felt was at least a possible fate, he ordered a weathercock 
to be placed where he might see it from his own apartment, that 
he might learn with his own eye whether the wind was Protestant 
or Papist. The wind turned Protestant and James took his depar- 
ture ; the weathercock still stands on the end of the Banqueting 
House. On 1 3th February, 1 688, both Houses of the Convention 
waited on the Prince and Princess of Orange in this hall to offer 
them the Crown, and the same day William and Mary were 
publicly proclaimed King and Queen. 

With the accession of the House of Hanover the Banqueting 
House assumed a new role, for the Government turned it into a 
chapel. In it the ceremonies connected with the distribution of the 



Sovereign's Maundy benefactions took place annually until 1890. 
One of the last public acts of King William IV. was the re-opening 
in State, on the 30th April, 1837, of the Chapel Royal, and from 
that date to the last day of 1890, the building, though never 
consecrated, was utilised for religious purposes.

Suckling, R.N., who valued it highly and gave it to his

Cabin, but it seems more than likely that had he had use 
for a sword his usual fighting one would have been resorted 
to. Two of the swords from his Cabin were disposed of in

effects from Lady Hamilton, prior to her death in 1814.

and Admiral in June, 1795. On llth October, 1797, he 
commanded the Fleet in the celebrated action with the 
Dutch off Camperdown. As a result of this victory, 
Duncan was raised to the peerage as Baron Duncan of 
Lundie and Viscount Duncan of Camperdown. The reward 
was considered inadequate for his services, but it was not 
until some time after his death that his son was raised to 
the dignity of an Earl (Earl of Camperdown). Given by 
TAeut. -General W. A. McCleverty. 

330. A Medallion Wedgwood Portrait of Vice-Admiral 
Lord Nelson, K.B. Horatio Nelson was the fourth son of the 
Reverend Edmund Nelson, of Burnham Thorpe, in Norfolk, 
where he was born on 29th September, 1758. He entered 
the Navy at the age of twelve. In 1794 under Lord Hood 
he reduced Corsica, where he lost his right eye. In 1797 
he took a prominent part in the victory off Cape St. Vin- 
cent, and two months later lost his right arm in an 
unsuccessful attack on Santa Cruz. In 1798 he won the 
famous victory of the Nile. In 1801 he destroyed the 
Danish Fleet at Copenhagen, and in 1805 he d'ied in action 
at his greatest victory, Trafalgar. 

Happy he who lives to finish all his task. The words, 



38 ROYAL UNITED SERVICE MUSEUM. 

" I have done my duty," sealed the closed book of Nelson's 
story with a truth broader and deeper than he himself 
could suspect. His duty was done, and its fruits perfected. 
Other men have died' in the hour of victory ; but for no 
other has victory so singular and so signal graced the ful- 
filment and ending of a great life's work. Finis coronat 
opus has of no man been more true than of Nelson. There 
were, indeed, consequences momentous and stupendous yet 
to flow from the decisive supremacy of Great Britain's 
sea-power, the establishment of which, beyond all question 
cr competition, was Nelson's great achievement ; but his 
part was done when Trafalgar was fought. The coincidence 
of his death with the moment of completed success has 
impressed' upon that superb battle a stamp of finality, an 
immortality of fame, which even its own grandeur scarcely 
could have insured. He needed, and he left, no successor.

After the death of Captain Cook, the chronometer came 
into the possession of Lieutenant William Bligh, R.N., who 
commanded H.M.S. "Bounty" in 1787-89; and when the 
crew of that ship mutinied in the latter year, it was carried 
by the mutineers to Pitcairn's Island. In 1808 it was sold 
by John Adams, one of the leaders, to an American, Mr. 
Mayo Fletcher, who sold it again in Chili. In 1840 it was

of selected officers and men, sailed from Greenhithe in

1846-47 there were gloomy anticipations, and, when the

winter of 1847-48 passed without any news from the ships, 
a real uneasiness was felt at home. With the spring of 
1848, began a series of relief and search expeditions, both 
public and private, British and American, which has no 
parallel in maritime annals. From information obtained 
in these expeditions, it transpired that Sir John Franklin 
died on the llth or June, 1847. that the two ships were 
abandoned on the 28th or April, 1848, and that Captain 
Crozier and every other soul of the brave party perished 
miserably. A Public Monument to their memory is erected 
in Waterloo Place 1 .

too large for the size of the model, are too crowded, ana 
could not be fought if so placed in the actual ship ; they 
should be about one-half the size, and the ship should carry 
from 74 to 104. The rigging is very accurate and com- 
plete, and all other details are correct. Given by Com- 
mander W. H. Higgs, B.N. 

438. -Model Of H.M.S. "Eurydice." 2(>-gun sailing frigate, 
921 tons. Built at Portsmouth in 1843. Served two or 
three commissions on the North American and West Indian 
and Cape of Good Hope stations. She was commissioned for 
the last time by Captain Marcus A. Hare, R.N., at Ports- 
mouth, on the 7th February, 1877, as a Training-Ship for 
Boys and Ordinary Seamen ; and was returning to Spithead 
after a winter's cruise in the West Indies, when she 
capsized in a sudden squall off Dunnose, Isle of Wight, on 
Sunday, 24th March, 1878, at 4.30 p.m. Of a crew of 
320 officers, seamen, and boys, only two were saved. She 
was afterwards raised, towed into Portsmouth Harbour, 
and broken up in the same year. Given by Admiral-oj-the- 
Fleet Sir J. Edmund Commerell, V.C., G.C.B. 

439 Model Of H.M.S. f< Medea." Paddle-wheel Steam Sloop

440. Relics of "Jack the Painter." Jack the Painter, whose 
real name was James Aitken, lived in the latter part of the 
18th Century. He resided at the " Raven Inn," Hook, 
near Basingstoke. and during the American War of Inde- 
pendence, roused the whole country by his deliberate 
attempts to fire our dockyards and shipping. He was 
successful at Portsmouth in 1776, and did damage to the 
extent of 60,000. So great was the scare, that, in res- 
ponse to a reward of 500 offered by the Government for 
his capture, the whole country was on the alert, and he 
was run to ground and captured at the " Raven Inn." He 
was eventually hanged at Portsmouth (see 346). Given by 
Captain T. M. Bagnold, B.N. 

441. Model of a Ship Of War of the period 1486-1520, when 
guns were first introduced. At this stage, fire-arms had 
not entirely superseded the bow and arrow ; and while guns 
had appeared from the sides of the ships, and the archer's 
panier had been succeeded by a deep circular top, both the 
fore and aft castles were still used as places of protection 
and seclusion for archers. 

The shape of the Model is very similar to the Spanish 
Caravelle of the early 16th Century, but the Caravelle only 
possessed one castle and was fitted with lateen yards, 
whereas the Model is square-rigged and probably ought to 
carry square topsails in addition. 

The beam or the ships of this date was very great in

proportion to their length ; so much did the sides project 
at the water-line that two ships alongside, although touch- 
ing at the water-line, would be several yards apart at the

should be fitted with a bowsprit projecting over the figure- 
head. Given by Lewis Evans, Esq.

473. Small Oak Box' made from the block of wood which sup- 
ported Lord Nelson's head in the cask which contained his 
body on the voyage to England. 

After the Battle of Trafalgar, as there were no appliances 
for embalming the body of Lord Nelson, it was placed in a 
cask, which was then filled up with spirit, and his head 
was supported inside the cask on a block of oak. On 
the arrival of the body in England it was transferred to a 
leaden coffin, which was then enclosed in a wooden one 
made from a spar of the French ship " L'Orient," des- 
troyed at the Battle of the Nile. When the body was 
removed from its temporary coffin (the cask), several of 
the officers wishing for mementos of their late commander, 
the wood of the cask and of the oak "pillow" was con- 
verted into small snuff-boxes, medal boxes, etc., and distri- 
buted among the surviving officers. Amongst these was a 
young midshipman, who afterwards succeeded to the title 
and estates of the Earldom of Egmont, and who, as his 
share, received this medal box into which was inserted a 
small gold plate bearing the inscription, " Nelson's Last

1792. the ringleaders were captured by the commander of 
H.M.S. " Pandora," and tried by Court Martial. Six 
were condemned, and three were executed. Of those who 
sailed from Tahiti in the ship, nothing was heard till the one

531. Walking Stick made out of the taffrail of H.M.S. "Shannon " 
shot away during the action with the American frigate 
" Chesapeake," June 1st, 1813. 

In the year 1813, the " Shannon," 38 guns, Captain P. V. 
Broke, had for some time been watching the American 
frigate "Chesapeake," of the same force in guns, but 
superior in the number of her crew, lying ready for sea, in 
Boston Harbour. The British Captain had sent a challenge 
to Captain Lawrence, of the " Chesapeake," to come out and 
try the fortune of war, ship to ship; and about 1 p.m.. on 
the 1st June, the American frigate weighed anchor, and 
stood out of Boston Roads to meet the " Shannon." At 
fifty minutes past four the action commenced, the ships 
being not more than a stone's throw apart, Boston light- 
house bearing west at about six leagues distance. After the 
exchange of a few broadsides, by which the " Chesapeake " 
suffered considerably, her tiller ropes being shot away, and 
her wheel broken, she fell aboard the " Shannon," whose 
anchor fouled the mizzen chains of her opponent. A sharp 
fire of musketry followed, when Captain Broke, observing the 
enemy to flinch from their guns, at the head of his boarders, 
sprang on the quarter-deck of the " Chesapeake." exclaim- 
ing, " Follow me who can," and with slight resistance drove 
most of her crew below. The Americans kept up a heavy 
fire from their tops, till the men stationed in them were 
killed or driven on deck, and made a determined hut fruitless 
attempt to rally, but in about fifteen minutes from the 
beginning of the action, all hostilities ceased, and the 
" Chesapeake " was the prize of the " Shannon." 

The loss of the victors was First- Lieutenant Watt, two 
other officers, and twenty-three men killed, and Captain 
Broke and fifty-eight men wounded, out of a crew of 330 
men. 

The " Chesapeake," out of a crew of about 386 men. had 
her Captain. First and Fourth Lieutenants, Master, Lieu- 
tenant of Marines, three Midshipmen, and fifty-three men 
killed or mortally wounded, and nearly ninety officers (in- 
cluding her Second and Third Lieutenants) and men 
wounded. Captain Broke, being severely wounded, Lieu- 
tenant Provo. W. Wallis (afterwards Admiral of the Fleet. 
Sir Provo. W. Wallis, G.C.B.) assumed the command, and 
with the two frigates sailed for Halifax, arriving there June 
6th. The gallant Captain Lawrence had died two davs 
before, on board the " Chesapeake," and was buried by his 
opponent at Halifax, with all the honours of war. At the

large size, under the command of the Duke of Medina 
Sidonia. The English fleet numbered 197 in all, but only 34 
were Royal ships, and of these but eight were over 600 tons 
burden. Lord Howard of Effingham commanded, with Drake 
and Hawkins as his Lieutenants. The English vessels hung 
on to the flanks of the Spanish ships as they sailed up 
Channel, harassing them in every way, and doing consider- 
able damage, until the Armada anchored in Calais Roads. 
Here many of their finest vessels were captured or destroyed 
by fire-ships, and finally, on the 30th, Medina Sidonia 
decided to attempt to escape northwards. His fleet was 
scattered by storms, and suffered many losses on the Scotch 
and Irish coasts, only about one half returning to Spain.

earlier arrows were fixed by means of lashing ; those of later 
times by a metal ferrule. The feathers seem to have been

the characteristic weapon of the bronze period, it is found all 
over Europe from Lapland to the Mediterranean. No war- 
like weapon of any period is more graceful or more beauti- 
fully finished. The finish seems to have been given in the 
mould without the aid of hammer or file, the edge being 
formed by suddenly reducing the thickness of the metal.

neighbouring countries. Admiral Vernon attacked the place 
with onlv six ships "Hampton Court" "Norwich" 
"Worcester." "' Burford," " Straffiord," and " Princfeae 
Louisa." after embarking 200 soldliers. under Captain

649. Design in Water Colours, showing the nags used in Lord 
Nelson's famous signal at Trafalgar. Painted by W. Gibb. 
Given by W. Gibb, Esq. 

The story of Nelson's Signal is best told in the words of 
the "Victory's" Signal Lieutenant, Pasco, the officer who 
received Nelson's orders to make it. The "Victory," at the 
moment, was somewhat less than a mile and a half from the 
enemy's line. 

"His Lordship," Lieutenant Pascoe says, "came to me on 
the poop, and, after ordering certain Signals to be made, 
about a quarter to noon, said, ' Mr. Pascoe, I want to say 
to the fleet, "England confides that every man 
will do his duty." ' He added, 'you must be quick, 
for I have one more to add, which is for "Close Action." I 
replied, ' If your Lordship will permit me to substitute 
expects for confides, the Signal will soon be completed, be- 
cause the word expects is in the vocabulary, and confides 
must be spelt.' His Lordship replied in haste, and with 
seeming satisfaction, ' that will do, Pascoe, make it 
directly.' 

" As the last hoist was hauled down, Nelson turned to 
Captain Blackwood, who was standing by him with, ' Now 
I can do no more. We must trust to the great Disposer of 
all events, and the justice of our cause. I thank God for 
this great opportunity of doing my duty.' 

" When Lord Nelson's message had been answered by a 
few ships in the van," continues Lieutenant Pasco, " he 
ordered me to make the signal for " Close Action," and 
to keep it np. Accordingly, I hoisted No. 16 at the top-gallant mast- 
head, and there it remained, until shot away."

flint-lock weapon, and is charged by means of the steel lode 
in the barrels, the travelling brass-plate acting as a gauge 
for guiding the rods. The weapon could be recharged when 
fired in about_ four minutes. Tne Mitrailleuse differed from

and act as ballast when not in use. The locker nearest 
the visitor is for cartridges, the further one being for

the keel, thus acting as ballast. The muskets are stowed

La Heve. It being thought practicable to cut out a French 
lugger of 12 guns, " Le Vengeur " laying in the inner road 
of Havre de Grace, the following force was detached for 
that purpose on 18th April, 1796, viz., 5 boats with one 
18 Ib. carronade, manned by 32 men, commanded by Sir 
Sidney Smith and the following Officers : Knight, Acting 
Lieutenant; Goodall, Mate; I. W. Wright, Boxer, Carrol, 
Morris, Beecroft, Coulson, and Harvey, Midshipmen. The 
lugger was boarded and carried before daybreak, but the 
cable being cut by one of the prisoners below, the prize 
was swept so rapidly by the flood tide into the River 
Seine that it became necessary to anchor. In this situation 
there came out against them from Havre another lugger, 
" Le Renai'd," of 16 guns and 80 men, supported by 3 gun- 
boats, carrying each a 36 pounder, and having on board 
not less than 100 land troops, besides a number of 
small boats armed from the town. There Avas hardly time 
to put the 50 French prisoners into a boat and send them 
off on parole, before a desperate action ensued, which lasted 
three-quarters of an hour, when having lost Thomas 
Bradley, seaman, mortally wounded in the knee by grape- 
shot, besides whom Mr. Beecroft was wounded in the hip 
and lost two fingers, and William Gilchrist, lorkswain, 
received a musfcet ball through the calf of the leg. the main 
and fore masts wounded and the sails and rigging cut to 
pieces ; want of ammunition and the duty of husbanding the 
lives of his intrepid followers obliged Sir Sidney Smith to 
surrender. The prize was carried into Havre, and the 
officers and men confined as prisoners at that place, Rouen 
and Amiens, except Sir Sidney Smith and Mr. Wright, 
who were sent to Paris and there detained as State 
prisoners contrary to the laws of war, in the closest confine- 
ment for nineteen months, till they effected their escape.

1084-. A Portrait in oils of Admiral Sir Charles Napier, K.C.B. 

Sir Charles Napier was born on 6th March, 1786, the son 
of Captain the Honourable Charles Napier, R.N., of Mer- 
chistoun Hall, Stirling. He entered the Navy on the 1st 
November, 1799, as First-Class Volunteer on board the 
"Martin" sloop, and was soon transferred to the 
"Renown," flagship of Sir John Borlase Warren. As Com- 
mander of the "Recruit" brig he was wounded in action 
with the French corvette "Diligente," and he later dis- 
tinguished himself in the pursuit of three French ships, 
ending in the capture of the "Hautpoult," and was pro- 
moted to Captain in 1809. He served as % Volunteer with 
the Army in Portugal, and was present at the Battle of 
Busaoo. Napier commanded the "Euryalus" in the ex- 
pedition to Alexandria, in America, and at the destruc- 
tion of shipping in the Potomac in 1814. He subsequently 
entered the service of Don Pedro and established Donna 
Maria on the Throne of Portugal by his victory over the 
fleet of Don Miguel off Cape St. Vincent in 1833. He was 
Second-in-Command of the fleet, under Sir Robert Stopford, 
in the operations on the Coast of Syria in 1840, when he 
bombarded and stormed Sidon, and defeated a large force 
of Egyptians near Beyrout. Having taken part in the 
capture of St. Jean d'Acre, he commanded the Baltic 
Fleet in the war with Russia (1854-5). 

Napier was created a K.C.B. on the 4th December, 1840. 
He also wore the Cross of the Order of Maria Theresa of 
Austria, and the Cross of the Order of St. George of Russia, 
and the Insignia of the Second-class of the Order of the Red 
Eagle of Prussia. He died in 1860. (Purchased.)

flatter on one side than on the other. In some cases the 
curve from end to end is nearly an arc of a circle, in others 
it is rather an obtuse angle than a curve, and in a few 
examples there is a slight reverse curve towards each end. 
In the hands of a skilful thrower the Boomerang can be 
projected to great distances, and can be made to ricochet 
almost at will ; it can be thrown in a curved path, somewhat 
as a bowl oan be "screwed," or "twisted," and it can be 
made to return to the thrower and strike tne ground behind 
him. It is capable of inflicting serious wounds.

74-gun ship " Redoutable." It is recorded that while at 
Bushey a pair of robins took up their abode in the hole and 
reared a brood of young ones, which were great favourites 
of the King and Queen Adelaide. The mast was removed 
to Windsor Castle in 1830, where it remained throughout

defeated by .Napoleon at Ligny two days before Waterloo. 
He afterwards deceived Grouchy, who tried to prevent his 
junction with the British Army under Wellington, and by 
a skilful and dangerous flank movement, his troops arrived 
at Waterloo in time to decide the great victory, and to 
participate in the pursuit. He died in 1819. Given by 
Major Daniell. 

2034. Skeleton of Marengo, N T apoleon's favourite charger. 
Marengo was a light grey barb, 14 hands one inch in heignt, 
and was procured by Napoleon in Egypt after the Battle 
of Aboukir in 1799. The horse was ridden by him at the 
Battle of Marengo. and named after the victory. It is 
believed subsequently to have carried his master at Auster- 
litz in 1805, at Jena in 1806, at Wagram in 1809, in the 
Russian Campaign of 1812, and at Waterloo in 1815, when 
he was wounded in the near hip. After Napoleon's defeat 
at Waterloo, Lord Petre gained possession of the horse 
and sold it to Lieut. -General J. J. W. Angerstein, who 
kept it at New Barnes, Ely, and bred from it. The animal 
was well cared for in his old age, and on his death his 
skeleton was given to this museum by Lieut. -General An- 
gerstein. Given by Lieut. -General J. J. W. Angerstein.

ROYAL UNITED SERVICE MUSEUM. 



2O35-2O36. Colours of the 33rd Regiment, 1832-54, then 
known as the 1st Yorkshire (West Riding) which were 
presented to the battalion, in 1832, at Weedon, by General 
Sir Charles Whale, K.C.B., colonel of the regiment. The 
first is the ordinary Royal colour, or Great Union ; and 
the second, or regimental colour, the Red Cross of St. 
George on a white field, and only two honours are attached, 
those of "Peninsula" and " Seringapatam." They have 
never been on active service, but they are associated with 
two interesting military events. From 1838 to 1840 the 
33rd 1 were at Gibraltar, and there under these colours 
H.R.H. the late Commander-in-Chief, then Prince George 
of Cambridge, was attached for duty to the battalion on his 
first introduction to the British Army. The 33rd, as is 
well known, monopolised most of the regimental service of 
the great Duke of Wellington, and at his funeral on the 
18th November, 1852 to attend which the regiment was 
brought to London from Glasgow these colours proved a 
conspicuous mark. The colours were retired from service 
at Dublin in 1854, prior to the 33rd proceeding to the 
Crimea. They were deposited at Danesbury, Welwyn, 
in Hertfordshire, with the commanding officer ; and 1 were 
presented by his widow to the Royal United Service 
Museum on 13th April, 1861. 

2O37-2O38. Colours of the 43rd Monmouthshire 
Light Infantry, 1818-27, now the 1st Battalion Oxfordshire 
Light Infantry, one of the regiments of the cele- 
brated Light Division of Peninsula fame. The 1st 
or Royal colour, is the Great Union ; and the second, 
or regimental colour, the Red Cross of St. George on 
the white field. They only bear the one distinction, 
" Peninsula," the other honours shortly afterwards 
authorised not having been added. They were made 
to replace those carried with such distinguished honour in 
the Peninsula, and were presented to the regiment in 1818 
at Valenciennes by Lady Blakeney, wife of Colonel Sir 
Edward Blakeney, K.C.B., commanding the 7th Fusiliers, 
which, with the 23rd Fusiliers and 43rd Light Infantry, 
formed Major-General Sir James Kemp's brigade of the 
Army of Occupation in France. Lieut. -Colonel C. C. 
Patrickson, C.B., commanded the 43rd, with Lieut. -Colonel 
W. F. Napier, C.B., the historian of the Peninsula War, 
for his major. The colours were carried on parade at the 
celebrated review held on 23rd October, 1818, the day before 
the break-up of the Army, when the whole of the British. 
Hanoverian, Saxon, and Danish contingents, commanded 
by the Duke of Wellington, were paraded before the 
Emperor of Russia and King of Prussia near Valenciennes. 
They were again on parade when the 43rd were inspected 
at Gibraltar, in 1822, by General Foissac le Tour, command- 
ing the French army in Spain ; the occasion when he was 
forced to admit that the regiment moved quicker than the 
French infantry, whom he had hitherto prided himself 
were the fastest in Europe. Their last public act was to

accompany the regiment to the Peninsula, in 1827, when 
5,UOO British troops were despatched under General Sir 
Henry Clinton, owing to the disturbed state of Portugal 
and the hostile attitude of Spain. A few months later 
the colours were retired from service, when a new set 
bearing the eleven additional honours authorised in 1821 
were presented by Mrs. Haverfield, wife of the commanding 
officer, Lieut. -Colonel William Haverfield. On the death of 
Colonel Haverfield, in 1830, the old colours came into the 
possession of Lieut. -Colonel Henry Booth, K.H., who died in 
1841. On 8th April, 1895, they were presented to the Royal 
United Service Museum by Colonel J. Johnstone and the 
officers of the 43rd (.now the 1st Battalion Oxfordshire 
Light Infantry), to be placed alongside those of the sister- 
battalion, the 52nd Ligfct Infantry. 

2039-2040. Colours of the 52nd Light Infantry, 1324- 
52, now the 2nd Battalion of the Oxfordshire Light 
Infantry, and they appropriately hang nest those of their 
linked battalion and old Peninsula comrades, the 43rd. 
The Royal or King's colour, is the Great Union, and is so 
dilapidated that it can scarcely hold the honours attached 
to it. The regimental colour, which is in much better 
condition, is of buff silk, and bears fifteen honours the 
largest number granted at the time to any corps, save one, 
the Rifle Brigade. They were presented to the regiment 
at St. John's, New Brunswick, in 1823, to replace the 
colours which the 52nd had so nobly borne in the Peninsula 
and Waterloo. In that great struggle, the 52nd were 
commanded by the celebrated Lieut.-Colonel John Colborne, 
afterwards Lord Seaton, he whom Napier justly described 
as " a man of singular talents for war, and capable of 
turning the fate of a battle." This distinguished soldier, 
who had so often led the regiment to victory, and never 
hurried it into defeat, commanded the 52nd when these 
colours were taken into use in 1824. They have never 
faced a foreign foe, but they were silent witnesses of the 
steady discipline and bravery of the regiment on board the 
transport " Marquis of Huntly," which was nearly lost in 
a hurricane in the Atlantic in 1831. It is a coincidence 
that these colours and those of the 43rd, lying alongside, 
faced each other on parade when the two regiments relieved 
each other at the Beggar's Bush Barracks, in Dublin, on 1st 
February, 1833. They accompanied the 52nd at home and 
abroad for nearly twenty-eight years, and were borne on 
parade for the last time at Dublin on Her Majesty's birth- 
day in 1852, when the regiment received a new set from 
their Lieut.-Colonel, Cecil William Forester. When 
Siborne's celebrated model of Waterloo was shortly after- 
wards placed in the Royal United Service Museum, Lieut.- 
Colonel Forester and the officers of the regiment presented 
the old colours to be placed near it. 

2O4I-2O42. Colours of the 66th Regiment, 1812-14. or

history attached to them. The 2nd Battalion of this regi- 
ment, with the 2nd Battalion 48th, the Buffs, and 31st, 
were in Colborne's brigade at Albuera, which was nearly 
destroyed. The loss of the four battalions amounted to 
1,413, of which the 66th reached 272; and so weak had they 
become that it was found necessary to form them into 
Provisional Battalions, when the 66th and the 31st were 
formed into a battalion commanded by Colonel Leith, of 
the 31st. It was necessary to supply the 66th with new 
colours after the battle. They duly arrived early in 1812, 
but were not taken into use because the colours of the 31st, 
as the senior regiment, were carried by the Provisional 
Battalion. They were, therefore, sent home, and when the 
regiment arrived in England in the summer of 1814, were 
sent to Plymouth to meet the battalion. But they were 
lost, never reached their destination, and it was necessary 
to make another set for the battalion. Not long after- 
wards they turned up again, but too late to be taken into 
use. They came into the possession of the commanding 
officer, and were presented to the Royal United 1 Service 
Museum on 8th March, 1876, by Miss I/ouisa Nicolls, a 
relative. 

2043-2O44. Colours of the Sirmoor Light Infantry, 

1844-50, now the 2nd (Prince of Wales's Own) Gurkha 
(Rifle) Regiment. They were presented to the regiment 
about the year 1844, and retired from service about 1850. 
The first is the ordinary Queen's colour, or Great Union ; 
and the second, or regimental colour, is a plain black sheet 
with the words, " Sirmoor Light Infantry," encircled by a 
wreath ; the uniform of the regiment being dark green, 
with black facings and black lace. Both are perforated 
with bullets and stained with blood. They were carried by 
the regiment in the campaign on the Sutlej, in 1845-46, 
and were present when it saved the cantonment and city 
of Loodianah, and in the subsequent defence of the city. 
They were in the Battles of Bhuddiwal, and Aliwal, in the 
latter of which the battalion suffered severely. In Lord 
Gough's victory over the Sikhs at Aliwal, where the regi- 
ment lost 145 killed and wounded, the colours were nearly 
shot to pieces. The pole of the King's colour was shot in 
half, and is now spliced. The native officer carrying the 
black regimental colour was killed, and the colour captured, 
but the enraged Gurkhas, by a frantic effort, recovered 
what was left of it, but without the pole, for which they 
substituted the bamboo on which its honoured remains now 
hang. They were presented to the Museum by General 
Sir Charles Reid, G.C.B., who was adjutant and second 
in command of the battalion in the campaign. 

2O45-2O46. Colours of the Sirmoor Rifle Battalion, 

1850-63, the successors of the two above described. They 
were presented about 1850, and retired from service in 
1863. The first or Queen's colour is the Great Union, and 
the second or regimental colour, black, with the words in 



OFFICIAL CATALOGUE. 139 

gold letters in the centre. " Sirmoor Light Infantry," sur- 
rounded by a wreath. They were with the regiment- one 
of the few which remained loyal during its brilliant service 
in the Indian Mutiny Campaign of 1857-59. They 
were at the battle of Badlee-Ke-Serai, and throughout the 
celebrated siege of Delhi, when this brave band of Gurkhas 
sustained and defeated twenty-six separate attacks upon 
their posts on the right of the ridge, in which they lost 
eight officers killed and wounded out of nine, and 327 men 
killed and wounded out of 490 of all grades. Both colours 
have been shot through and are blood-stained. The black 
regimental colour \yas cut clean in two by a 32-pounder 
round shot, which killed and wounded three officers and ten 
men. For its distinguished services the regiment was 
permitted, though a rifle battalion, to continue carrying 
colours, and was further granted an extra or honorary 
regimental colour. In 1863, when the regiment decided to 
discontinue carrying colours as unsuitable to a rifle bat- 
talion, Her Majesty the Queen presented it with an 
honorary truncheon, which was publicly delivered to the 
regiment on parade, and now holds a distinguished place in 
the corps. These colours were presented to the Museum 
in 1895, by General Sir Charles Reid, G.C.B., who com- 
manded the regiment with greatest distinction during the 
Mutiny.

Regiment. They are made of crimson damask, fringed and 
embroidered with gold. They have never been on active 
service, and are associated rather with ceremonies of State. 
They did duty at the coronation of the King, when the 
regiment appeared for the first time in bearskin grenadier 
caps. They accompanied the regiment at the funeral of 
H.R.H. the Duke of York, Commander-in-Chief of the 
British Army, and at the funeral of George IV. They 
were again displayed at the accession of William IV., the 
founder of this Institution. 

2O59-2O61. Three Standards of the 4th (Royal Irish) 
Dragoon Guards, 1820-37. The first, or King's standard, is 
of crimson damask,, of the guidon shape, and edged all 
round with gold and crimson fringe. In the centre is 
the Union badge of the rose, thistle, and shamrock 
on one stalk ; underneath is the word " Peninsula " in a 
scroll ; and in each of the four corners, in blue silk, an oval 
badge. The second standard is of blue damask, fringed 
with gold, and the small ovals at the corners on red silk. 
In the centre is the Star of St. Patrick. These standards 
have seen no service more actual than the suppression of 
riots in England and Ireland : but like those of the 2nd Life 
Guards, they recall many State ceremonies and escorts. 
They are associated, in this manner, with Queen Adelaide, 
William IV.. Don Miguel of Portugal, and the Queen of 
Portugal. They were taken into use about the time when 
the regiment was reduced to six troops. Previous to this

the troops were classified according to the colour of the 
horses, there being two black troops, two brown troops, two 
bay, one bright bay, and one chestnut. Presented to the 
Museum by the late General Sir Edward Cooper Hodge, 
G.C.B., colonel of the regiment, on 6th June, 1858. 

2062-2065. Four Guidons Of the 23rd Light Dragoons, 

circa, 1803-H5, believed to have led the regiment in its celebrated 
charge at Talavera in 1809. The regiment was in Anson's 
brigade, which was ordered by Sir Arthur Wellesley to 
attack Villatte's Division, and the 23rd, starting at a 
canter, and increasing their speed' as they advanced, rode 
headlong against the enemy, but in a few moments came 
upon the brink of a hollow cleft, which was not perceptible 
at a distance. The regiment plunged down without a 
check ; men and horses rolling over each other in dreadful 
confusion. The survivors mounted the opposite bank, by 
twos and threes, and rallying, passed through the midst of 
Villatte's columns, which poured in a fire from each side, 
and fell upon a brigade of French Chasseurs in the rear. 
The combat was fierce, but short ; for fresh troops came up 
when the 23rd, already overmatched, could scarcely hold 
up against the Chasseurs. The regiment lost two hundred 
and seven men and officers, or about half the number that 
went into action. The racings of the regiment being 
crimson, the first guidon was, as usual, of that hue. For 
distinction's sake, though hardly in accordance with the 
Regulations, the other guidons were blue. It is impossible to 
decide with exact certainty the date when they were made, 
but probably soon after the regiment was renumbered, in 
1803; the battle honours, "Peninsula," "Talavera," were 
added in 1815 or 1816, where space could be found for them. 
On the conversion of the regiment into Lancers, in 1816, 
the standards were discarded. The 23rd Light Dragoons 
were raised in 1795, as the 26th Light Dragoons, and were 
renumbered the 23rd in 1803, converted into Lancers in 
1816, and disbanded in 1817. The standards were pre- 
sented to the Museum by Major F. Bolton, on 20th 
August, 1872. 

2O66. Model of the Field and Battle of Waterloo, 

18th June, 1815. The construction of this Model of the 
great victory achieved by the British Army under the 
Duke of Wellington, assisted by the Prussians under Field- 
Marshal Blucher, was, with the approval of the Authori- 
ties, commenced in 1831 by Captain William Siborne, late 
of the 9th and 47th Regiments, an officer familiar to the 
Army as the Author of the " History of the War in France 
and Belgium in 1815." 

For a considerable time Captain Siborne was employed 
upon the field, in taking an accurate survey of the ground, 
and in ascertaining, with the greatest mathematical pre- 
cision, the position and extent of every object and enclosure, 
and the level of the surface and its undulations. Every 
village, every house and farm-yard, every knot of trees, 



142 ROYAL UNITED SERVICE MUSEUM. 

every field is given with the closest accuracy, from a six 
months' personal observation, aided by the most authentic 
information. 

The Model is constructed upon a scale of nine feet to 
a mile. It is 21 feet 4 inches in length, by 19 feet 8 inches 
in breadth, and comprises an area of 400 square feet. 

It affords a complete representation of the ground on 
which the battle was fought. As nearly as possible it 
shows the disposition of the hostile armies at 7.45 p.m., 
the turning point of the battle, when the second column 
of the French Imperial Guard was received in front by 
Major-General Peregrine Maitland's Brigade, consisting of 
the 2nd and 3rd Battalions of the 1st Foot Guards, and 
attacked in flank by Major-General Frederick Adam's 
Brigade, composed of the 52nd Light Infantry, 71st High- 
land Light Infantry, and the 95th (Rifle) Regiment. 

Captain Siborne spared no exertion in endeavouring to 
procure accurate information as to the position of the 
divisions of both armies at this crisis of the battle. With 
the permission of the Commander-in-Chief he addressed 
every officer in the Service, who, from the command which 
he then held, or from the circumstance in which he was 
olaced on that occasion, was likely to be able to afford 
assistance. 

The Model was exhibited for a short time in public, after 
which, in response to a generally expressed desire that it 
should be procured for the country, its purchase was 
effected in 1851, and it was presented to the Royal United 
Service Museum. No fewer than fourteen Regiments of 
Cavalry, arid forty-seven Battalions of Infantry, as well 
as the Royal Artillery and Royal Engineers, contributed 
to its acquirement. Prominent in liberality amongst the 
individual subscribers was His late Royal H%hness the 
Prince Consort, and, amongst regimental subscribers, the 
Brigade of Guards in which the Non-Commissioned Officers 
as well as the Officers contributed handsomely. 

The long road stretching from the centre of the Eastern 
side of the Model to the opposite side, is the road from 
Brussels to Charleroi. Brussels formed the centre of the 
Duke of Wellington's original position. Thence, at dawn 
on the 16th June, he marched on Nivelles and Quatre Bras. 
Defeating the French Marshal Ney at Quatre Bras, he 
proceeded on the 17th June to his position in front of 
Waterloo, on the field of which the troops bivouacked in 
the open : throughout the night preceding the Battle of 
Waterloo it rained incessantly, and very little rest was in 
consequence afforded the troops. 

llie line nearest the Eastern side from which smoke is 
proceeding is that of the Allies, engaged with the French 
in their front. On the left of the Brussels-Charleroi Road 
are Kempt's and Lambert's British Brigades; on the right 
are the King's German Legion, the Brigades of Hanover- 
ians, Nassaus. Brunswickers, and Halkett's, Maitland's 
and Adams' British Brigades. The last three British 



OFFICIAL CATALOGUE. 143 

Brigades are engaged in meeting the final effort of Napo- 
leon's Imperial Guard, which was the crisis of the great 
battle. The position of Napoleon at this moment was be- 
tween La Haye Sainte and La Belle Alliance on the right 
of the Brussels-Charlerpi Road. Wellington's position was 
in rear of the right of Mainland's Brigade. 

The advance upon the British Line, of the French Im- 
perial Guard under a tremendous fire from the British 
batteries on the high ground on their left was the crisis 
of the Battle, for on its success or failure depended the 
fate of Napoleon, and the destinies of Europe. The dark 
mass, almost in the centre of the model and on the right 
of the Brussels-Charleroi road, is the first column of Napo- 
leon's devoted band of warriors, consisting of four Battalions 
of the Middle Guard, which having sustained a signal 
defeat by Major-General P. Maitland's 1st Brigade of 
British Foot Guards, aided by Major-General Sir C. Hal- 
kett's Infantry Brigade, is flying in disorder towards the 
high ground, intersected by the road, upon which the 
Emperor was standing. 

Napoleon's final effort, which ended in its defeat in the 
wildest confusion, was the attack of the second column, 
consisting of the remaining four battalions of the Middle 
Guard and two battalions of his Old Guard, in the over- 
throw of which the 52nd Light Infantry (whose Colours 
[2039 and 2040] hang from the gallery above the model) 
distinguished themselves. The Imperial Guard is shewn 
engaging Adam's and Maitland's Brigades. 

On the extreme right are skirmishers of the 51st Light 
Infantry engaged with those of Prince Jerome Napoleon's 
Division. To the left of the Skirmishers is seen in the 
trees the house Hougomort in flames ; this house was the 
right of the Allied position, and was defended throughout 
the day by the British Foot Guards with the greatest gal- 
lantry. It was set on fire by the French. 

In the far left corner of the model is the village of 
Planchnoit, occupied by the French Young Guard and part 
of the Old Guard, the Prussian 25th Regiment is just 
emerging from the wood to the east of the village. In 
the middle of the left side of the model the Prussian Skir- 
mishers are seen engaging those of the French. 

2O67. Model of the Battle of Trafalgar. Fought on 21st 
October, 1805, whon the British Fleet under Vice-Admiral 
Viscount Nelson, K.B., obtained a great victory over the 
combined Fleets of France and Spain. The Model was 
completed in 1862 by Mr. Thomas D. Dighton, and shows 
the disposition of the Fleets at twenty minutes past noon. 
The table on which the Model stands is made from the 
timbers of Lord Nelson's Flagship the "Victory," and was 
presented by the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty. 

The Model was constructed to illustrate Lord Nelson's 
Plan of Attack as explained by him to his Flag-Officers 
and Captains previous to the battle. Lord Collingwood 
with his Lee Column was to break through the enemy's 



144 ROYAL UNITED SERVICE MUSEUM. 

line and to cut oft the twelve rear ships. Nelson with his 
Weather Column was to prevent the enemy's van from 
succouring their ships before Collingwood had defeated 
them. 

The combined Fleets having Cadiz under their lee, 
Collingwood cut off sixteen ships and Nelson cut through 
twelve ships from the van in order to ensure the capture 
of Villeneuve's ship. Thus were the centre and rear of 
the combined Fleets defeated before their van could attempt 
to render assistance. The "Victory" is seen with her 
mizzen topmast shattered, but she has just given the 
" Bucentaure " her mortal blow, and is turning on the 
" Redoutable." The "Royal Sovereign" is engaging the 
" Santa Anna," and is followed by the " Belleisle/' 
" Mars " and " Tonnant," which, have each selected her 
antagonist. The "Formidable" has her flying jib set to 
draw attention to Dumanoirs' disobedience. Villeneuve 
twice signalled him to keep in the wake of the van ship. 
The " Africa " is seen nearing the Weather Column, after 
running the gauntlet of the French van. 

The British Fleet was composed of 27 sail of the line 
and 4 frigates, the combined fleet numbering 33 sail of 
the line and 7 frigates, 20 of the enemy's ships struck their 
colours. Nelson fell in the moment of victory, while the 
Spanish Admiral was killed and Villeneuve captured. 
Most of the prizes were lost in a heavy gale which sprang 
up after the battle. The British lost 1,587 killed and 
wounded, the losses of the Allies being far heavier. 

2O68. Combined Gold Knife and Fork, with steel edge. It 
was always used by Lord Nelson, after the loss of his right 
arm at Santa Cruz on 24th July, 1797. It was pre- 
sented to him by Countess Spencer, wife of Earl Spencer. 
1st Lord of the Admiralty. At the sale of Lord Bridport's 
effects in 1895 it was purchased by Mr. J. A. Mullens.

2111. -Model of a Line-of-Battle Ship of the year 1650. The 
/nodel represents one of the fleet of the Hanseatic League, 
and was taken out of the Arsenal at Hamburg by Captain 
Sir John Marshall, R.X., in the year 1804. It was sub- 
sequently rigged and fitted, so far as possible, to the date 
of her construction to form a contrast with the model of 
H.M.S. " Cornwallis " which lies alongside. In 1903 it 
was found necessary to re-rig the model, and at the same 
time certain defects in the masts, yards, and bowsprit. 
were rectified, and the vessel, as now exhibited, is a per- 
fect pattern of the ships of 1650. llie alterations were

carried out by the Staff of the Museum, and the practical 
work was executed by the Senior Attendant, Mr. James 
Pike, late P.O., 1st Class, R.N. 

The Jtianseatic League was an association formed by the 
Port Towns in Germany against the piracies of the Swedes 
and Danes. Its strength was broken up by the Thirty 
Years' War in Germany, and in 1650 the only towns re- 
taining the name were Hamburg, Lubeck and Bremen.

2112. Model of H.M.S. "Corn wall is," third-rate Line- 
of -Battle-ship. The ship was built at Bombay in 1812 by 
Jamsetjee Bomajee. She was pierced for 84 guns, but 
generally mounted 74. 

Length ... 177 ft., 1 in. Number of Guns... 74. 

Breadth ... 45 ft., 4 in. Heaviest Gun ... 32 pr. 

Tonnage ... 1809 B.O.M. Crew 590. 

She was commissioned in 1813, and employed as the 
Flagship of Rear-Admiral G. Burlton in the East Indies 
at the end of the war in 1815. In 1835 she was altered 
to a 72-gun ship. In 1842 she was employed during the 
first China War, and the crew took part on shore in the 
attack on the heights of Segoan, and the captures of 
Chapoo, Woosung, Shanghae, and Chin-Kiang-Foo. About 
the year 1854 engines were put into her, and in the follow- 
ing year she was commissioned as a third-rate Battle-ship 
of 60 guns, 1,809 tons, 200 horse-power, and engaged in 
the operations in the Baltic during the Russian War. She 
was with the squadron under the command of her Captain, 
Captain G. G. Wellesley, R.N., and served at the bom- 
bardment of Sweaborg in 1855. 

This model, J-inch to the foot, was built simultaneously 
with the ship by the son of Jamsetjee Bomajee. It was 
fully rigged to form a contrast with the model of 1650 
lying alongside. In 1903 it was considered advisable to 
exhibit in the Museum a model of a ship under sail, and 
it was decided to fit a suit of sails to the " Cornwallis." 
The work was carried out by the Staff of the Museum, the 
practical work being executed by two of the Attendants, 
Messrs. James Pike and John Smith, late P. Os., 1st Class, 
R.N. Given by The Directors of the late Honourable East 
India Company.

2199. Main-Roy al-Mast-Head of the French Flagship 
"Orient," blown up in Lord Nelson's great victory of the Nile, 
1st August, 1798. 

In this victory, the French fleet, under Admiral Brueys, 
although having the advantage in ships, guns and men, 
was totally defeated with the loss of eleven sail of the line 
and two frigates. 3,105 of the French, including the 
wounded, were sent on shore by cartel, and 5.225 perished. 
The British loss amounted to 895 killed and wounded. 

It was shortly after nine in the evening, that the fire 
on board the "Orient" (a huge three-decker, of 120 guns) 
broke out. The brave French Admiral Brueys was dead. 
He had received three wounds, yet would not leave his 
post ; a fourth cut him almost in two, yet he desired not 
to be carried below, but to be left to die upon deck. The 
flames soon mastered his ship. Her sides had just been 
painted, and the oil- jars and paint-buckets were lying on 
the poop. By the prodigious light of this conflagration, 
. the situation of the two fleets could now be perceived, the 
colours of both being clearly distinguishable. About ten 
o'clock the ship blew up with a tremendous explosion, 
which was followed by a silence not less awful ; the firing 
immediately ceased on both sides ; and the first sound 
which broke the silence was the dash of the shattered masts 
and yards falling into the water from the vast heights to 
which they had been exploded. It is upon record that a 
battle betwen two armies was once broken off by an earth- 
quake such an event would be felt like a miracle ; but 
no incident in war, produced by human means, has ever 
equalled the sublimity of this co-instantaneous pause and 
all its circumstances. 

About seventy of the " Orient's " crew were saved by the 
British boats, but the greater number went down with the 
ship, together with the 600,000 which she had on board. 
Among the many hundreds who perished were the Com-

modore, Casa-Blanca, arid his son, a brave boy only ten 
years of age. The popular legend, as related in verses dear 
to young people, is fictitious in all, save the fact that the 
Casa-Blancas, father and son, did perish. They were 
hurled into the water together, and were seen swimming ; 
but, in spite of efforts to save them, were lost sight of in 
the darkness and drowned. It was prior to this battle that 
Nelson made the remark to his officers, " Before this time 
to-morrow I shall have gained a Peerage or Westminster 
Abbey." He was raised to the Peerage as Baron Nelson 
of the Nile and of Burnham Thorpe ; and, amongst other 
rewards, received a pension of 2,000 per annum, and a 
grant of 10,000 from the East India Company. 

This Trophy, which' formerly stood in the Hall of Merton 
Place, when Nelson and the Hamiltons resided there, was 
presented by the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty.

2202. - Model of the Maltese Galley " La Capitana," 

built under the Galley Arches at Malta early in the 18th 
Century. 

The earliest ships of all nations were of the galley class, 
that is to say, they were vessels depending primarily on 
their oars for propulsion, but possessed at least one sail 
as an auxiliary. The war-galley of the Greeks originally 
had a single mast carrying one square sail amidships, later 
two masts were introduced, but the oars were always re- 
sorted to when a high speed was necessary. Galleys con- 
tinued in use in the Mediterranean and other seas till the 
middle of the 18th century, ordinary ones in later times 
having from five to twenty-five oars on a side in a single 
row, each oar worked by several men, with two or three 
masts and triangular sails. 

The Sister-vessel of the galley which this model repre- 
sents was sunk by the Turks, and the Knightw of St. John 
of Jerusalem ever afterwards carried striped sails on " La 
Capitana " as a tribute of mournful respect. Given by

lines outside the City, but on September 13th, having 
landed above Quebec, he met and defeated the French, 
who evacuated the place on the 17th.

trate, proceeded down the principal street, whilst the other, 
headed by his son, took the direction of Stow-hill. They met 
in front of the Westgate Hotel, where the magistrates were 
assembled with about 30 soldiers of the 45th Regiment, and 
several special constables. The Rioters broke the windows 
and fired on the inmates, by which the Mayor, Mr. (after- 
wards Sir Thomas) Phillips, and several other persons were 
wounded. The soldiers returned the fire, and dispersed the 
mob, which fled, leaving about 20 dead and others wounded.

Stephens in March, 1858, and in 1864 enlistments and secret 
drillings took place. The Fenian Oath is, "I promise by the

the Society F.B., and to free and regenerate Ireland from 
the yoke of England. So help me God."

necessary to re-establish communication over the bridge 
unknown to the French, Major Sturgeon invented an appli-

ease, and prepared secretly. It was completed on llth

was that the farriers oould remove it from the waggon and 
place it in a stable or shed, where, in all probability, 
there would not be room to admit the whole waggon. It 
the Portable Forge is not required, the bellows can be 
worked in the waggon, in the same position as it is carried, 
by placing the two iron sockets (inside the waggon) over the 
gudgeons of the bellows ; the rock stave to be worked in the 
same way as on the portable forge, the hearth, tew-iron and 
trestle to be placed to the rear of the waggon towards the 
nozzle of the gun. When upon the line of march the whole 
is carried inside the body of the waggon, the anvil removed

2916. Gun used in Mafeking during the Siege. This 
gun was made in the railway workshops at Mafeking during 
the siege. The core is a steel steam-pipe, round which were 
lapped bars of iron, which were hammered and turned into 
their present condition. The trunnions and breech are 
castings of brass; for the castings a blast furnace was im- 
provised out of an iron water-tank lined with fire bricks, 
the draught being forced through the pipe of a vacuum 
brake off a railway carriage. 

The shells for the gun were similarly cast, and were loaded 
with powder, and exploded by a slow match which was 
ignited by the flame of the discharge. The powder was 
also manufactured in Mafeking. 

On one occasion the breech blew out, and was repaired 
and fixed with the stout iron holding-bands which may be 
seen connecting the breech to the trunnion-block. The 
gun was made by Mr. Coglen, of the Railway Works, under 
supervision of Major Panzera, British South African Police, 
who commanded the artillery of the defence. It was 
mounted by Mr. Gerrans, the well-known waggon builder in 
Mafeking, on the wheels of a threshing machine. It was 
named "The Wolf," after Colonel Baden-Powell, whose 
nickname this was among the people of the north. De- 
posited by H.M. the King.

2934 Model Of H.M.S. " Phoebe," 36 guns, a fifth rate Ship 

of 926 tons, built on the River Thames in 1795 by Sir J. 
Henslow on the design of the "Leda," which was built in 
1783. The "Phoebe" possessed a gun-deck of 142 feet and 
a beam of 38 feet, her keel was 119 feet, and the ship 
carried a crew of 270. During her later commissions she 
mounted 42 guns. 

In 1796 the "Phoebe," Captain Robert Barlow, was de- 
spatched to Vice-Admiral Sir John Colpoys to report the 
arrival of Rear-Ad!miral de Richery at Brest. On January 
10th, 1797, she captured the French ship " Atalante " off 
Scilly. On December 20th. 1797, she gave chase to the 
French frigate "Nereide, 40 guns. The French ship 
opened fire with her stern chasers, and inflicted much 
damage on the " Phoebe's " masts, sails and rigging. 
Finally they closed and fought at 300 yards for three 
quarters of an hour, when the Frenchman struck. 

On February 19th, 1801, the "Phoebe" fought an action 
with the French frigate " Africaine," 40 guns, to the East 
of Gibraltar. The French ship was heavily laden with 
troops for Egypt, together with six field-guns and a quan- 
tity of ammunition. The "Phoebe's" fire wrought great 
havoc on the crowded deck of the Frenchman. After a 



194 ROYAL UNITED SERVICE MUSEUM. 

fight of two hours the " Africaine" struck. Her two senior 
officers were wounded, the ship was on fire in several places, 
five feet of water were in her hold, and most of her guns 
were dismounted. 

The "Phrebe" was one of the fleet under Vice-Admiral 
Lord Nelson in .the Mediterranean in 1803. In 1805 she 
was commanded! by Captain Hon. Thomas Bladen Capell, 
and he commanded her throughout the Battle of Trafalgar, 
where she served as one of the five frigates. In 1810, ui;der 
the command of Captain James Hillyar, she comprised one 
of the fleet engaged in the reduction of Java. In 1811 she 
was much damaged in an action with French frigates. In 
1814, in company with the ship-sloop " Cherub," 18 guns, 
she fought the American frigate ' "Essex" at Valparaiso, 
and after a very long and hard fight the "Essex" sur- 
rendered. In 1830 the "Phoebe" was reserved for Harbour 
Service, and in 1841 she was sold. 

The hull of the model having been given to the Museum 
in 1906, it was determined to rig the vessel to represent a 
ship of the middle of the 19th century. The entire work 
was carried out by Mr. John SmrEh, late P.O. 1st Class 
R.N., one of the dtaff of the Museum. Given by Captain 
A. Foster, Oxfordshire Imperial Yeomanry.

2946. A Breech-loading Wrought Iron Gun of the 15th 
century, recovered from the " Mary Rose," which 
foundered on July 20th, 1545. To load the gun the wooden 
wedge is removed, and access is thus given to the chamber, 
which is removed, loaded, replaced in the breech, and 
wedged up again before firing. The three pairs of rings 
were- used both for moving the gun, and for lashing it to- 
gether when being fired. A spare chamber is lying along- 
side the exhibit. 

The earliest forms of cannon were open at both ends, and 
the breech was closed after loading by means of logs of wood 
pegged to the ground, or by a moveable butt, or recoil 
piece, fitted to the carriage of the gun. The next pattern 
of gun was made so as to allow the fire-chamber to be en- 
tirely removed for loading, and this form was superseded 
by the ordinary muzzle-loading gun which was in general 
use until about the year ] 860, when the breech-loading gun 
was re-introduced. 

The invention of trunnions to support the gun, and to 
keep it evenly balanced and prevent its recoil off the 
carriage, appears to date from the 15th century. About 
the year 1400 iron balls superseded those of lead, and it is 
well known that during the 15th century red-hot shot, 
wrapped in wet linen, were fired into besieged towns to 
burn them, but this practice did not come into general use 
until the 17th century. 

The "Mary Rose," 60 guns. 500 tons, was built in 1509. 
In the year 1521 she was described as being one of the five 
largest ships in the Navv. Vice- Admiral Sir William Fitz- 
william, in describing the " Henry Grace a Dieu " "to the 
King on June 4th, 1522, stated that she sailed as well, 
and rather better than, any ship in the Navy, weathering 
all but the " Mary Rose." 

On the occasion of the attack on Portsmouth in 1545, in 
moving out to meet the French Fleet, the " Mary Rose," 
being very low in the water, heeled so much when her helm 
was put hard over that the sills of her open lower ports, 
only sixteen inches out of the water, were submerged. She 
quickly filled and sank, carrying with her her Captain. 
Sir George Carew, and! all hands with the exception of 
about 35 persons. The King and Lady Carew witnessed 
the disaster from the shore. 

It is interesting to record, in connection with the salvage 
operations for raising this gun in 1836, that two of the 
divers, while under water, quarrelled about some details of

3O32. Uniform Coat, being one of the two worn by Lord Nelson 
in his last service in H.M.S. " Victory/' 1803-05. The 
actual coat which Lord Nelson was wearing at the time 
he received his mortal wound is now at the Painted Ha'l 
at Greenwich. It shows the hole made by the bullet near 
the left epaulette. Four or five of the buUions of the 
epaulette are missing, and it is interesting to record the 
circumstances which necessitated their being cut off. 
During the Battle of Trafalgar Sir George Westphal (then 
a Midshipman) was wounded in the head, and was carried 
down to the Cockpit and placed near Lord Nelson. Nelson's 
coat was rolled up and used as a pillow for Westphal's 
head. When the battle was over, and it was desired to 
remove the coat, it was found that four or five of the 
bullions of the left, epaulette had stuck to the wound owing 
to the coagulation of the blood, and it was found necessary 
to cut them off in order that the portions sticking to the 
wound might be dealt with. Sir George Westphal possessed 
one of these bullions in 1844. 

Lord Nelson's fighting coat was sent by Captain Hardy 
to Lady Hamilton, on the " Victory " arriving in England. 
Shortly before her death, in 1814, Lady Hamilton gave it, 
together ^with many other relics of Lord Nelson, to Alder- 
man Smith who had helped her very considerably during 
her financial difficulties. Alderman Smith's Widow sold 
it to the Prince Consort in 1845 for 150, and His Royal 
Highness presented it to the nation.

increasing her fixed weight for land carriage, or her 
draught of water when launching, or in very shallow water.

tanks are separate so that one or more can be filled as the 
case may require. They also form water-tight chambers 
round the trunks of the drop keels in case they should leak 
through injury or otherwise. Deposited by the Royal

manded by Commander Lord Charles Beresford, formed one 
of the fleet in the Mediterranean under the flag of Sir 
Beauchamp Seymour. At the bombardment of Alexandria, 
on the llth July of that year, the Condor greatly distin- 
guished herself, as she for some time engaged single-handed 
the powerful Marabout Fort, the fire from which, owing to 
the flanking position it occupied, was causing considerable 
annoyance to the ships engaged in attacking the Mex Forts. 
So skilfully handled was she by Lord Charles, and so 
accurate was her fire, that the Admiral made the signal 
before all the fleet, " Well done, Condor." On the town 
being occupied after the bombardment, Lord Charles was 
appointed Town Commandant, and so speedily did he 
organise an efficient police force, and so excellent were the 
arrangements he made, that in a very short time law and 
order was completely re-established. Armament of Condor.

with twist increasing from to 1 in 35 calibres ; Weight

Powder; Muzzle velocity, 1,575 foot-seconds; Muzzle energy, 
13,930 foot-tons; extreme range, about 4 miles. Date, 1874. 
These Guns were constructed on what was known as the 
"Woolwich' or "Fraser" System, first officially introduced 
for the construction of heavy guns in 1865, but which was 
merely an improvement on the system of gun construction 
invented by the late Sir William (afterwards Lord) Arm- 
strong some ten years previously. This method of con- 
struction consisted in the shrinking on round an inner 
steel tube, which formed the bore 3 of four or more jackets 
formed from the welding together of wrought-iron coils. 
The advantage of jfche system was that in the event of the 
inner steel tube bursting, as in the early days of the use 
of steel for heavy gun tubes often happened, the covering 
wrought-iron jackets being more elastic than the stec) 
prevented the effects of the bursting having disastrous con 
sequences. This method of construction remained in force 
until 1881, when breech-loading guns were definitely 
adopted, which from that time have been made entirely of 
steel. The present 12-inch guns are said to have an ex- 
treme range of 15 miles. Bequeathed by the late Lord 
Edward Spencer Churchill (late Captain " Isle of Wight 
'Artillery Militia 9 ).

six natures, viz., the 7-inch 110-pounder, described above;

1863. by the English Fleet under Sir L. Kuper, when a 
number of the breech-blocks were blown out. with fatal 
results, the issue and .manufacture of the larger types of 
the.se guns was discontinued ; the use of the 20-pounder 
and smaller types of these guns as field and anti-torpedo

in the De Berenger frauds, although his innocence was 
afterwards completely established. In 1817 he accepted 
the offer of the Chilian Government, then fighting for its 
independence with Spain, to organise and command the 
Chilian Fleet, ia task which he accomplished with brilliant 
success, taking a leading part in the war. Later he 
performed a similar service for Peru, Brazil, and Greece.

reinstated in the Navy as a Rear-Admiral, and restored to

trusted him with the command of a war vessel for employ- 
ment against French pirates. Four years later he entered 
tEe service of the States, and distinguished himself in an 
action off Cape St. Vincent on November 3rd, 1641. At 
tEe outbreak of war with England in 1652 he was 2nd in 
command to Admiral Trqnip, and in the three battles that 
followed showed great skill and bravery. He reduced the 
Algerine Corsairs to submission, and in 1665 took command 
of a. large fleet, organized for war against England. After 
considerable fighting off the North Foreland he compelled 
the English to take refuge in the Thames. In 1672 he 
fought a drawn battle with the combined fleets of England 
and France in Southwold or Sole Bay (June 7th). He 
was killed at the Battle of Messina (Anvil 21st, 1672), and 
was buried at Amsterdam, where a magnificent monument 
to his memory was erected at the command of the States 
General. The King of Spain invested de Ruyter with the 
dignitary of duke, but the patent did not reach his fleet 
until after his death.

6444. Model of H.M.S. "Royal Albert." The i ;Koyal 
Albert," the keel of which was laid down at Woolwich on 
26th August, 1842, was originally designed as a sailing line- 
of-battle ship, but in January 1852, the order was given 
to alter her to a screw-ship of the line, and, in consequence, 
she was lengthened about 14ft. at the stern in order to give 
space for tlfe propeller. This additional length increased 
her size by about 246 tons measurement, and her dimensions 
then were : Length between the perpendiculars, 232ft. 9in. ; 
length of keel for tonnage, 193ft. 6in. ; breadth, extreme, 
61ft. ; breadth for tonnage, 60ft. 2in. ; breadth moulded, 
59ft. 4in. ; and depth in hold^ 24ft. 2in. Her builders' 
measurement tonnage was 3,/26 tons, and her displace- 
ment 5,637 tons. 

Her engines, built by Messrs. John Penn & Son, on their 
patent trunk principle, were of 500 nominal horse-power, 
and 1,805 indicated horse-power. 

She was launced by H.M. Queen Victoria on 13th May, 
1854, and it was then the intention that her armament 
should consist of 131 guns, but this was reduced to 121 
guns. 

In the autumn of the same year she was commissioned by 
Captain Sir Thomas Pasley, with a complement of 1,000 
men, and went out to the Black Sea as flagship of Rear- 
Admiral Sir Edmund Lyons, Bart., G.C.B., before 
Sevastopol. 

After her Mediterranean commission, she served as flag- 
ship of the Channel Squadron, and this was her last sea 
service, her name disappearing from the " Navy List " 
in 1884.

6502. Pistol-Shaped Instrument for measuring the explosive 
force of gunpowder probablv Cromwellian. The graduated 
scale registering from 1 to 10 revolved on a spindle and was 
controlled by the now much corroded spring. On the edge 
of the spindle tbe marks caused by the friction of the spring 
are visible. The stop on the inner side at the foot of the 
trierirer-like projection, which closes the muzzle, acts when 
" 10 " is registered, and when this trigger closes the muzzle 
" 1 " is recorded on the under edge: th/? arrow mark fitting 
to the edge. The curve of this underedge shows that the 
position in which the instrument is now wired is correct. 
That it was intended to be fired is evident, and also that 
it was fired by a match applied to the touch-hole. Examina- 
tion leads to the conclusion that the instrument was used 
for measuring the explosive strength of powder, and three 
notches on the reverse side have apparently been filed in 
the barrel to denote the amount of powder employed. The 
engraved figure* are certainlv of Rtnart date, and it is quite 
possible that the instrument may be Cromwellian. 

It wa found at Bolsover, on the traditional site of 
Cromwellian Artillerv post during the siege, and it became 
the property of a Mr. Alfred Pitken, who gave it to the 
donor. Given by Colonel W. L. Coke.

August, 1854. 

On 23rd October, 1865, owing to serious insults to the 
British flag, she bombarded Cape Haytien, then in posses- 
sion of rebels. While engaging the various batteries, she 
also endeavoured to ram the steamer " Valorogue," but 
unfortunately ran on a reef within point-blank range of 
a masked battery, which instantly opened fire upon her. 
Nevertheless, she sank the "Valorogue," and also the 
largest schooner of the enemy's fleet, blew up the powder 
magazine ashore, set fire to the town and dispersed with 
grape and canister the riflemen who had assembled on the 
shore. At nightfall, Captain Charles Wake, who had no 
intention of letting the " Bulldog," which was still fast 
aground, fall into the hands of the blacks, and who had 
little ammunition left, set fire to and abandoned her, and 
in due course, she blew up. During this action, out of a

sense they entertained of his services in protecting and 
defending that island in the years 1803 and 1804, and of 
his zealous exertions to promote the interest thereof during 
his command on that station. Attached also is a document 
offering him the sum of five hundred guineas from the 
members of His Majesty's Council of the island. 

Edward Henry Columbine entered the Navy as midship- 
man on board the "Lively" at Easter, 1778. The 
" Lively " was captured in July of that year at the com- 
mencement of the action between Keppel and D'Orville off 
Ushant, and Columbine was wounded. He remained a 

Prisoner in France for eighteen months. In 1796, being 
lieutenant commanding the brig " Resolution," 14 four- 
pounder guns, he engaged seven French gun vessels off 
Cape Corse and defeated them, blowing up the flag-ship. 
He was sent home and promoted. He became a Post 
Captain in 1802 and was appointed to the " Ulysses " 50- 
gun frigate, and sent to the West Indies, and conducted 
some important enquiries relative to the government of 
Trinidad by General Picton. In 1808 he was appointed 
Commissioner for the West Coast of Africa, and in the 
following year Governor of Sierra Leone and Commodore 
on the station, commanding the " Solebay," 32 guns. 
With the squadron under his command he captured Senegal 
from the French, losing his ship in the enterprise. 8he 
was replaced by the "Crocodile." and in command of her 
he died at sea, in 1810, of yellow fever, aged 47. B<'- 
qucathed by the late Sir John Dorington, Bart.

have been tried with remarkable success for smooth-bore 
muskets. The intention of the invention was to reduce 
the weakness of rifling the barrel, the projectile doing its 
own work, and thus reducing the cost of big guns and 
powder charge. Given by Colonel Sir G. J. Hay, K.C.B.^

6651. The King of Ashanti's Execution Bowl, which 
formed part of the loot taken from Prempeh by the Expedi- 
tion under Colonel Sir Francis Scott in 189G. 

The Bowl, which is of brass, resembles an ordinary bath 
tub in appearance and size, and is about 5 ft. in diameter. 
On the rim are four small lions and a number of knobs, 
evidently intended as an ornamentation, and would appear 
to be of Moorish origin. There is a gap in the continuity 
of knobs to allow a space for the victim to insert his neck, 
preparatory to execution. The bowl was fully described by 
Bowdich in his account of Ashanti in 1817. Kumasi, where 
the bowl was taken, means the City of Death ; it possessed 
three places of execution one at the Palace for private 
executions, one on the parade ground for public exe- 
cutions, and a third, named, Bantama, where the bowl was 
found, for fetish sacrifices. Any great public occasion was 
seized upon as an excuse for human sacrifice, such as the 
harvest festival, at which large numbers of victims were 
offered. 

The King also went every quarter to pay homage to the 
shades of his ancestors at Bantama, and on each occasion 
the death of 20 men over the great bowl was demanded. 
The blood of the victims was allowed to putrify in the 
bowl, the leaves of certain herbs being added, it was con- 
sidered a very valuable fetish medicine. 

King Prempeh was accustomed to watching the sacri- 
fices seated in a chair, with the Queen-Mother seated on 
a stool on his left, being sheltered from the sun by a large 
umbrella, which is also preserved in this Museum. Given 
by Lieut-General Sir E. S. S. Baden-Powell, K.C.S., 
K.C.V.O.

arrows. The beak is taken from a snake eating bird, and

seeds on the neck are to represent the red feathers the bird 
has. It is very difficult to obtain these heads as the
