V & A Royal Yacht - How it all began?


Courtesy Graham Hoskins

Uniquely in my collection of memorabilia I found this ‘SS Gothic’ item dated and signed by FVD that you may like to post.

See that FVD was only a Lieutenant
at this time but already had an MVO and had been elected as an ARAM by the Royal Academy of Music.

This one has to be a bit special for not only is it dated 12th November 1936 and signed by FVD but incredibly it bears the royal cypher of Edward the Eighth who of course was never actually crowned.
