Lord Charles Beresford and the Admiralty
The Engineer
vol. 65, 16 March 1888, p. 221

Accession No.2858


"On Monday night Lord Charles Beresford raised the long expected question as to his retirement from the Board of Admiralty, and the objections on which his actions his action was based. His position is, that although much had been done by his late colleagues, and especially the First Lord, the present system of the Admiralty is radically defective, so that he felt that it was imperative on him to resign, hoping that such a step might call public attention to the evil system and bring about the fundamental reform that he considers is necessary for real efficiency."
