HMS Britannia - Dartmouth

The Naval Cadets of HMS Britannia - May 1895

It is in the Britannia training establishment at Dartmouth that our Lieutenants, Commanders, Captains and Admirals receive their first training as naval cadets, entering at from 13 to 14 years of age by nomination and competitive examination.  The Britannia course of study covers two years, and the cadets then pass out into the naval service to become midshipmen, according to classification for study and conduct.  The happy accident, that the first ship allotted to the cadet training service was the old Britannia of the Russian war, gave the institution its name, and none could be more appropriate.

Esquimalt, near Victoria in British Columbia, Canada, was the major Royal naval base on the west coast of Canada.  A naval base was established  in 1848, and  in 1861 Esquimalt became the headquarters of the British pacific Station. Around 1885 a dry dock was constructed so that repairs could be carried out on ships upto small Cruisers.  the Royal navy pulled out of Esquimalt in 1905, (along with their other Canadian base at Halifax).  The Royal Canadian Navy  started in 1910 soon took over the Control of the the naval base in 1910.
