For The Love Of The Royal Navy

A celebration of the British Armed Forces. Royal Navy: how did the Navy and the Marines come to be royal? why was Samuel Pepys entrusted with professionalising the navy? what are the origins of everyday expressions like ‘toeing the line’, ‘showing your true colours’, and ‘piping-hot food’? A celebration of the oldest of the UK’s armed services. Marvel at the magnificent vessels that have always been the backbone of the force, from the Tudor warship ‘Mary Rose’ to the aircraft carrier HMS ‘Queen Elizabeth’, the largest warship ever built for the Royal Navy. Pay homage to the acclaimed naval heroes and the impressive battles that make up its illustrious history, from the Battle of Gravelines which saw off the Spanish Armada, the sea battles of the Napoleonic Wars to the First and Second World Wars. Learn about the remarkable people who serve in the Royal Navy's ranks today, in roles as widespread as conflict-prevention, counter-narcotics, counter-piracy and humanitarian and disaster relief: all working to ensure that the senior service will retain its reputation for excellence for generations to come.
