A Philatelic History of the Royal Navy from the 16th to 21st Century

The Battle of Chesapeake Bay – 1781

Many countries have issued postage stamps depicting British naval ships, famous captains and admirals, wars, battles, wrecks and explorers. During many years I collected a large number of these stamps and used these images to outline the history of the Royal Navy from its inception in 1509 to today.

Comments and suggestions are welcomed.
