Slightly late as this is a month old. Anouther link to the past lost, i hope to find and read his published works. Is what it claims about RN's WW2 Engineering true? While i knew that british ship building practices were old, i thought this was due to ship yards being stuck behind the times and unable to upgrade due to lack of money or being to busy during the war. I had read that the admiralty wasnt exactly hidebound and old fashioned either.
