There was an exhibition of the Chatham Silver Collection in the St George's Church at about the date you mention. It was all drawn from the RN Trophy Store in Portsmouth. A call to the RN Museum in Portsmouth should bring a result.

Hi, can anyone throw any light on this for me please.  I can remember going to the church in the Chatham dockyard around 1995ish where there was a silver model of King George V's funeral cortege.  My father was one of the 250 ratings that walked behind the coffin.  Every sailor was depicted with his name on the base.  I never took my camera but was promised a photo by the local paper as I had lent  the organisor for their display a large photograph.  I never received the photograph and a) I wonder if anyone has a copy I could see or b) know the whereabouts of this model.  I have tried ringing both Chatham and Portsmouth dockyards but no one seems to know what I am talking about !
