Memorial: HMS Crystal Palace

Erection date: 6/6/1931

Inscription

{On a nasty modern white plastic sign attached to the railings - temporary, we hope:}
This trophy was unveiled by H.R.H. The Prince of Wales, K.G., on 6th June 1931 to commemorate the service of R.N.V.R. officers and men in The Great War, including 125,000 officers and men who were trained for all branches of the Royal Navy at the training depot, H.M.S. Victory VI at the Crystal Palace, 1914 - 1918.
The trophy was damaged during the 1939 - 1945 war and was restored in 1955 through the generosity of past and present members of the R.N.V.R. and their friends.

This trophy was originally placed on the old quarter-deck (presumably constructed and used for training purposes). We cannot discover the origins of the trophy.
