The Naval Review - The Independent Professional Journal

Navigate to 1975 issue 3 and scroll down to 'Bored of Admiralty' for a gentle giggle. It's a bit dated but I liked it. @jim30 your comments welcome!

Somebody I served with back in the Stone Age told me of a black hole in Bath to which he sent bothersome dockets in the secure knowledge that I would be months before they reappeared.

More seriously the NR archive is a mine of info (and some dross). I got to this one looking for Patrick Beesly's articles on the WW2 Operational intelligence Centre which I found MOST informative.

John Winton was a regular contributor.

Thanks for the pointer seaweed - Naval Review is a great resource.

The 'summary' of 100 Years of the Naval Review "Dreadnought to Daring" is a good read, especially as my copy was gratis.

The Naval Review would benefit from more serving officers. Membership is cheap, even Jocks can't grumble.

I'm sorry but if it's not free it's too dear.
