Navy News

Richard Symonds-3
All,

Navy News is the 'unofficial' newspaper of the Royal Navy. it's not published by the RN, but the two organisations work closely together. It tends to get sold mostly on the south coast, but it covers all aspects of Royal Naval deployments etc, and has done for 50 years. It's a fantastic source for naval articles - and now they're digitising all their past copies and making them freely accessible.

You can see the oldest at http://navynews.co.uk/digital-edition/archive?date=-491878800, and an example copy at http://content.yudu.com/Library/A1vdxx/195406NavyNewsJun54/resources/index.htm?referrerUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fnavynews.co.uk%2Fdigital-edition%2Farchive%3Fdate%3D-491878800. To quote them, "Our technical genius Trevor has now scanned in all our 1954 editions - back when we were simply Portsmouth Navy News (some readers complain we still are...). Trev's now working on 1982 issues to mark the 30th anniversary of the Falklands."

Regards,

Correction - it is, in fact, the official newspaper.
