Stripes and Types of the Royal Navy

Regular price £8.00 Sale

Explore the ranks of the Royal Navy in the early 20th century with this nostalgic handbook from the National Maritime Museum’s archive.

Facsimile with introduction by Robert Blyth. Published by Royal Museums Greenwich.

Originally published in 1909 to ‘interest and educate the public mind in the men who constitute the first line of our defensive forces’, this series of beautiful illustrations and quaint descriptions explains the jobs behind the uniforms.

From the responsibilities of the Admiral, to the manual work of the ordinary seaman and the duties of the stoker, this charming book provides a very British introduction to the Royal Navy.
