The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

  2. Well sorted
  3. Surly at least every VC winner up until the end of the second world war has direct links to the UK. Yes Oz, NZ and Canada (plus others) were all dominions and 'countries in there own right' but they were very much there as a British effort.
  4. I'm sure the Director of British Future will be well placed to recognise the Britishness of chaps who, by accident of nature, were born outside our shores.
