Regular Feature, Proceedings, Drollery


Education, Military Technology, Government

    Reports on the government's successful campaign to establish a Royal School of Naval Architecture at South Kensington, to which Punch adds the suggestion that 'Arrangements are to be made for launching the vessels into the basin in the Horticultural Gardens'. Later notes news of an imminent 'grand trial of the rival guns, Armstrong v. Whitworth', and therefore suggests establishing a 'School of Naval Gunnery'. Proceeds to explain the progress of a 'Bill for testing Chain Cable, so as to ensure the safety of vessels at anchor'. (104)
