- The Royal Yacht 'Britannia' was launched 16th April 1953, commissioned 11th January 1954. It was in service from 1954 to 11th December 1997, when it was decommissioned. She was the 83rd such vessel since King Charles II acceded to the throne in 1660. This menu printed on the final year of the yacht's service is quite rare.
