Funeral of Edward VII - Naval Contingent

Funeral of Edward VII - Naval ContingentNaval Contingent - Sailors marching with reversed arms. Part of Box 127 Boswell Collection - Funeral of Edward VII.

Despite having to completely replace its war fleet, the Navy managed to maintain its overwhelming advantage over all potential rivals. Royal_Navy, 1815.E2.80.931914 Date: 1910
