PostSubject: Prince Imperial   Sat Jan 13, 2018 10:38 pm

Just picked up a collection of medals and documents belonging to Major General Arthur Kenneth Hay DSO OBE late RA. In his memoirs he stated:

............and the the family went to live at 3, The Ridges, Farnborough, Hants. This house was on the high ground opposite to the gates into Empress Eugenie's house (widow of Napoleon III). There is a mausoleum in the grounds where Napoleon and the Prince Imperial are buried. It might be mentioned here that our father ( General E.O. Hay) was one of the pall bearers who carried Prince Imperial's coffin at his funeral (six of the tallest young Artillery Officers were selected for this). As the Empress was a Roman Catholic, there were a number of monks connected with the mausoleum. In our holidays one of our amusements used to be to shoot with catapults or pea shooters, I forget which, at these monks as they went in and out of the gates. We did this from the roof of the house on to which we were able to get to through a skylight, and we were always out of sight behind the roof when the monks looked round.

Visiting at other times

Individuals who wish to visit the church and crypt should contact us, either by email below or by telephone (Mon. to Fri. 10am – 4pm). We work for our living and it is not practical for us simply to ‘down tools’ every time the doorbell rings.

I see my attempt at levity sank like a stone, TOME a book, especially a large, heavy, scholarly one.
TOMB..a large vault, typically an underground one, for burying the dead... just a bit of wordplay.

Signed and annotated photo of Prince Imperial in frame. Very expensive (to my mind) but it might be of interest to our photo collectors. PM me for source details.
