As King George III was Eton's greatest patron his birthday is celebrated every year with the Procession of Boats, formerly held on the 'Fourth of June' but now on the Wednesday before the first weekend of June. The top rowing crews from the top four years row past spectators on the riverbank wearing traditional costume including boaters such as this. The boats were given patriotic names, in this case St George, Made by W V Brown of straw with a painted hat band. The name within the boater tells us this was worn by Sir Terence Charles Stuart Morrison-Scott DSC DSc FMA (1908–1991), a British zoologist, Director of the Science Museum and the British Museum of Natural History in London, England.

English circa 1920.
