Description: An image of a group of boys from the 'Warspite' singing from the British Legion’s Service of Remembrance booklet. The boys’ education was not limited to practical seamanship – they were also given a strong moral upbringing, with regular church services. The bulldog in front of the group was the vessel’s mascot.
