|Description: Boys from the Royal Hospital School are posing behind the railings which once linked the columns on the south side of what are now the National Maritime Museum colonnades. The school continued at Greenwich until 1933 when it moved to its present site at Holbrook, near Ipswich in Suffolk. The vacated buildings then became the home of the National Maritime Museum. The Royal Hospital School today is the largest HMC co-educational full boarding school in East Anglia.|
