Ships of the Royal Navy 1955
Beano Military & Armed Forces Ships of the Royal Navy 1955 Ships of the Royal Navy 1955 50 - In 1955, World War II was still fresh in many people's memory, the Korean War not longover, and the Cold War was at its height. In that context, the Royal Navy maintained one of the biggest fleets in the world - and not only warships, as is revealed in Ships of The Royal Navy, issued with Beano bubble gum. The black & white photographs, by courtesy of the Admiralty, demonstrate the diversity of the vessels sailing under the White Ensign, from aircraft carriers such as H.M.S. Eagle and Illustrious tosubmarines and fast patrol boats, even one or two from the Royal Australian and Royal Canadian Navies, plus Royal Fleet Auxiliaries - Blue Ensign supply ships and tankers - all with highly informative texts. Our illustration includes H.M.S. Belfast, the Navy's largest cruiser (now a museum moored on the Thames near Tower Bridge) and the Royal Yacht Britannia, Size 68 x 37mm
