Royal Naval College, Dartmouth EPW024215 Featured The South-West from the Air Print

Royal Naval College, Dartmouth EPW024215

ROYAL NAVAL COLLEGE, Dartmouth, Devon, photographed in 1928. This officer training college was purpose built on this site in 1905 to a design by Sir Aston Webb. The college originated in 1863 and had previously housed students in hulks moored on the River Dart. Cadets as young as 13 were trained here in naval skills and leadership. Graduates from Dartmouth provided much of the officer corps of the Royal Navy through both World Wars. The present Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales and Duke of York all attended the college. Now known as the Britannia Royal Naval College, this building still provides a training base for naval officers of many foreign and commonwealth countries as well as the Royal Navy.

CERNE ABBAS GIANT, Dorset, in the care of the National Trust. Aerial view. The giant's origin is uncertain, although one theory is that he was cut to represent "England's Hercules", as a parody of Oliver Cromwell. The rectangular earthwork above the giant is known as the Trendle, an Iron Age enclosure possibly for a farmstead. In the 19th century the earthwork was traditionally used as the setting for a Maypole
