Flag Officers who did not attend Britannia

  • Fisher
  • Wilson
  • Milford Haven
  • Gaunt, G.

Noel passed the examination for Naval Cadet on 4 December, 1858. He presumably entered the Britannia, which became the Training Ship for Naval Cadets on 1 January, 1859.

Pre-Britannia Education

Cowan never went to school, and Guy Gaunt isn't counted, on account of his entering from the R.N.R. For the record, he was educated at Melbourne Grammar School and Worcester.
