The Bellot memorial at Greenwich Hospital

Greenwich Hospital, flying the Union flag over the Governor's House in the King Charles Court, dominates the right of the picture, from which inmates, through several open windows, look out at the scene. The Bellot obelisk stands in the foreground to the right of centre. It was erected in 1855-1856 in memory of Lieutenant Joseph-RenÔòáBellot of the French Navy who was drowned after falling through ice in the Wellington Channel in August 1853 while carrying despatches from Beechey Island to Sir Edward Belcher's squadron, then searching for the lost 1845 Arctic expedition of Sir John Franklin.
