Russell Grenfell’s Sea Power (1940)

In the far southwestern corner of England, overlooking the blue Atlantic and the green rolling hills of Penwith, there is a village of tiny grey stone cottages called St. Just, less than 10 km away from Land’s End and a short walk from Cape Cornwall. Behind the King’s Arms is the Anglican Parish Church, built in the 15th Century. Inside it, you’ll see stained glass windows and a large collection of old flags – the biggest of which is a White Ensign (a Cross of St. George with a Union Jack in the top left-hand corner). It belonged to HMS Revenge (pictured above), was flown during the Battle of Jutland (1916), and was presented to the church by Captain Russell Grenfell.
