EARLY ROYAL NAVAL T-SHIRT FROM THE ROYAL TOURNAMENT

DESCRIPTION -- This item is from The Royal Tournament and is a very early white Royal Naval T-Shirt. It is in a very good condition and the size is believed to be small to medium (there is no size attached).
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Very Good

HISTORY -- The precise origins of the Tournament are not exactly clear however tradition suggests that the idea originated at the National Rifle Association meetings on Wimbledon Common in the 1870's. The meets attracted volunteers from across the Victorian Army. Although stories of a Military Tournament held to entertain the competitors at Wimbledon had been mooted for years, contemporary newspapers do not record such an event. However, it is known that sports meetings were held at Wimbledon to amuse the troops during the period between the end of the shooting and the prize giving.

The yacht was built by the Clyde shipbuilders Messrs John Brown & Co at a cost of 2,098,000 to replace her 50-year-old predecessor, Victoria and Albert III.

After good and bad times it became the largest shipping group in the world in 1927 when it took over the White Star Line. The company ran into financial trouble, and the British government investigated its affairs in 1930, resulting in the Royal Mail Case. Chairman Lord Kylsant was imprisoned in 1931 for misrepresenting the state of the company to shareholders.

HISTORY -- The Merchant Navy is the maritime register of the United Kingdom, and describes the seagoing commercial interests of UK-registered ships and their crews. Merchant Navy vessels fly the Red Ensign, and are regulated by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).  The Merchant Navy has been in existence for a significant period in British history, owing much of its growth to British imperial expansion. As an entity in itself it can be dated back to the 17th century, where an attempt was made to register all seamen as a source of manpower for the Royal Navy during times of conflict.
