Advice on gaining Naval History knowledge

Re: Communications Technician

Hi All,

I am on annual leave from work next week with no plans to fly abroad and was considering visiting the RN Museum at Portsmouth.

The website doesnt really show much so can someone advise me of the best places to go?

I was also hoping to maybe board a ship to see what the environment is like of a 'live' ship, as well as gaining a better knowledge of the Naval History and also understanding the structure and placing of leaders.

Can anyone assist? Best places to go? Interesting places to visit etc?
 
You can buy a ticket to all the attractions in the historic dockyard which allows a return visit. You'll get the Warrior, Victory, Mary Rose (nice if you like looking at a damp wood frame), Action Stations and the Museum. You won't get on a running warship.
The Naval Historical Branch is also here in Portsmouth. I think that's access by appointment only though.

With regard to going on board a RN ship, keep a look out for port visits around the UK, for instance, HMS Illustrious is in Liverpool this weekend.

So the best place to find out the port visits is Navy News?

I suggest you pick up a book I recently acquired:

Battle at Sea: 3000 Years of Naval Warfare, by R.G. Grant. Its an enlightening read, ranging from the Romans to the present day. Tactics, ships, leaders, weapons the lot.

In regards to Illustrious, anyone here going on board this sunday? I'm going on and sailing with her to Portsmouth, invited by the AFCO.
