Prince Philip


War Hero
When the Duke arrives at the top of the heavenly gangway, St Peter won't command the Side Party. God himself will be there to greet HRH. God will salute first.

God bless Prince Philip, God save the Queen.

Dartmouth held a special place in Prince Philip's heart, as he returned many times to take the salute at passing out parades, including for his own son, Prince Andrew in 1980.
In 1999 - 60 years after his own training - he opened the Britannia Museum.
His final official salute at the college was at a 2010 passing out parade for 150 new naval officers.
Sailors from the college are due to be among about 200 sailors and Royal Marines supporting his funeral on Saturday.
