Dovecote Press: "Dorset - The Royal Navy" - Stuart Morris

Published very recently.

"Since Tudor times the ships of the Royal Navy have dropped anchor in Dorset's waters. The English fleet first attacked the Spanish Armada off Portland. Four captains at Trafalgar were Dorset-born. Much of the D-Day fleet set sail from Dorset. Until recently, Portland was a major naval and helicopter base, whilst Poole remains a home of the Royal Marines and Special Boat Squadron."

Some illustrious Rum Rationers live in Dorset or have been based there, so this book might be of interest. The Dovecote Press also offers "Dorset - The Army" and "Dorset - The Royal Air Force".

It will be interesting to read what the author has to say about the redevelopment of HMS Osprey.
