Stripes and Types of the Royal Navy

A Little Handbook of Sketches Showing All Ranks from Admiral to Boy Signaller

This nostalgic handbook from the archive of the National Maritime Museum was originally published in 1909 and was intended to “interest and educate the public mind in the men who constitute the first line of our defensive forces.” In these pages, each rank found in the Royal Navy is beautifully illustrated with images of its uniform and markings, with additional information provided on the distinctive insignia of each rank of officers in the Royal Navy in the Executive and Civil branches, as well as the distinguishing badges of petty officers, men, and boys.

80 pages | 30 color plates | 4 1/4 x 5 3/4
