Savoy Chapel

Having taken the London Underground, viz. the Tube, from Northwick Park to Charing Cross via Baker Street, I ambled along The Strand, past such hallowed establishments as the Savoy Hotel and Simpson's in the Strand, to my ultimate destination, The Queen's Chapel of the Savoy.

At eleven, I met the Rev Prof Peter Galloway OBE, the Chaplain.

We had a good conversation about heraldry and he showed me many of the heraldic plaques which adorn the wooden panelling of the chapel.

Recipients of Knight Grand Cross, including royalty courtiers, were among the GCVOs.

the Savoy Chapel boasts a magnificent ceiling and the stained glass windows are wonderful, too.
