Extract from Editorial:

As we begin our tenth year of publication I remain amazed at the variety and quality of photographs that are submitted for each edition - so many on this occasion that several features have had to be held over to the next! Throughout this edition we have gathered a selection of images from 1909 and the pre-dreadnoughts through to the very latest warships of today as they run sea trials prior to entering service as the next generation of warship - over 100 years of warship design and development captured on film.

For many of the features, the images have been taken during large fleet assemblies - 1909 on the Hudson; 1957 on the Clyde; 1966 in Sydney harbour and through the 1980s at Portsmouth to this year at Kiel. All of this serves as a reminder as to how difficult it is in the UK today to get to see the Royal Navy up close. As mentioned in the ‘Portsmouth Past’ feature, UK Navy Days are a thing of the past - standfast the Bournemouth Air Festival which attracts a naval presence, there are no large events in the UK where the public can meet the navy and board its warships. For an island nation where the freedom of movement on the seas is essential to our prosperity and well-being it is astounding that the RN has such a low public profile.
