Royal Yacht Britannia

Spread the love

With the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1959, large ships were able to access Lake Ontario.  BRITANNIA visited 13 to 16 July 1959 and berthed alongside STAR.  The royal portraits over the wardroom mantel and BRITANNIA’s badge over the bar were donated during the visit.

As a boy, I was lucky enough to be brought to visit the Royal Yacht and was given these badges by a crew member.
