In a promotional letter dated 24th May 1978 the Lord Mayor, Air Commodore The Honourable Sir Peter Vanneck wrote: ĎOne hundred years ago, the city of London won a long, hard and very important battle.

The reefed main sail has torn loose against the shrouds; the starboard paddle-case is awash; the crew shelter by the stern weather rail while heavy seas break over the wreck. Hillary is assisting coxswain Vondy at the stern steering oar; behind a crewman is paying out a stern anchor line; two others are fending off with oars from ridges of rocks to the right; in the bows a man is hailing the ĎSt. Georgeí

The four candleholders surmount a crowned, rampant lion, the royal and national symbol of England, whose origin lies in Richard the Lionheartís choice of golden lions for his alms. The lion proffers St. Edwardís Crown, so named because, in origin, it was the Confessorís own, preserved by the Abbey and is now the Coronation Crown, The lionís left paw is supported by a shield bearing a cross and five martlets: the arms of St. Edward, which are incorporated in those of the Abbey. The shape of the foot, with its twenty five gilt flutes, is reminiscent of the fab vaulting of the Henry VII chapel, the Abbeyís most wonderful architectural feature.
