    Default My Artifacts From The HMS Prince George

    Hey guys these two items are what my grandpa gave me a few years ago for my birthday. These relics are remnants of the crashed HMS Prince George. This ship crashed along the coast of Holland “Camperduin” in 1920. These items, along with many others that he still has in his possession including Candle Holders, ship parts, and daggers have been passed down through the family since his father who originally salvaged them in 1920. The items that I currently have in my possession are the main deck Barometer and some misc part that I need your help with. If you would like to see some more information on the ship please see the WIKIPEDIA page. HMS Prince George (1895) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Thanks

    The threaded hinge reminds me of a watertight door clamp. I'm suprised the barometer is American made and not British, but hey ho!

    The last pic you show of the ship reminds me of the image on the reverses
    of one of my favourite group of medals - the RNR Long Service medals
    - at least, the vessels are of the same era.........

    The Long Service Good Conduct Medals of the British Naval Reserves

    Well i think this is a WWI era battleship. So it would kind of make sense because i mean these ships were the work horses/Pride and joy of the Royal Navy.

    All I can say is the ship is a "Majestic" class of 9 ships launched between 1894-96
    Ahh I just looked at your wiki link and you already know this
