On this day [6 October] in 1884, the Naval War College was founded in Newport, RI. The idea for the War College came from Stephen B. Luce, its first President, who wrote in Proceedings magazine that naval officers should “possess a knowledge of the science and practice of war.”

Royal Naval Waistcoat.
Royal Naval uniform: pattern 1795. Circa 1795. English. Cotton; gilt brass & wool.

This white wool waistcoat of the 1795 pattern. The rank and status of the wearer was indicated by the pattern of the button, in this case a flag officer. It is interesting to note that the waistcoat retains the three-point pocket flap, which would have been considered old fashioned in 1795. | Royal Museums Greenwich
