  2. Hear Hear. Theres a fantastic scene in the Spielberg Film Amistad which portrays the RN in action destroying Baracoons on the African coast. It's an aspect of the RN's history we can all be justly proud of.

    Not to mention the fact that even today we are still active in operations aimed at preventing so called Human Traffiking, the modern day slave trade.
     
  3. It's also an aspect of the RN we are never taught about.
     
  4. Although thats not suprising, the only history taught in schools now is WW1 and WW2.
