From the cover: “This unique collection of photographs, from amateur snapshots submitted by members of ships’ companies to pictures specially commissioned from the Royal Navy’s own Photographic Branch, provides a fascinating pictorial history of the Senior Service in the Cold War era. Developments in ship design, naval aviation, organisational changes and wars and confrontations are featured, along with the many occasions on which the Royal Navy and Royal Marines have been the prime movers in disaster relief operations and mercy missions across the world — plus a sprinkling of Tugg Willson’s superb Jack cartoons.
Today the Royal Navy has more ongoing commitments at home and overseas than it had 20 years ago.
In such circumstances it will ever be a Navy in the News.”
