Following competitive examinations, the following candidates were awarded Naval Cadetships, listed here in order of merit. I presume this was that second odd term of new cadets who were admitted directly to the Royal Naval College, Dartmouth as the Navy transitioned to the new scheme of education.[1][Fact Check]

The source article did not contain information on prior schooling.

Additionally, the Service Record for Francis Theodor Hare indicates that he went to Britannia, which I presume means that he went in this term, too, as the other men above all have this designation.

The article also says that Henry Clarmont Phillips won a Service Cadetship and that a man named R. A. F. Montanaro qualified for a Colonial Cadetship, but I cannot find him in The National Archives.
