Visitors: at home and abroad
« on: 17 January 2020 06:16:52 pm »

Hello,

Another original subject has been posted on our website www.navtechlife.com

In the days before jet flight, a country would be represented abroad by the visit of a warship. At home, when in port, the ship would be visited by friends and family. A newly-commissioned ship was visited by government ministers and the Admiralty. "Showing the flag" was both a social and a political gesture. Over 20 photographs, many from personal collections, are presented on this topic.

Have a look!

John
