The following guidelines should still
enable you to find what you want on the Internet:
1. My main area of interest is the Navies of the world 1914 to 1945 and
postwar. Outside this, you could search for more suitable websites (I
2. To find out about particular ships, use the search box at the top of
www.naval-history.net. If you can
not find what you want, do an internet search, but add HMS (or HMAS, HMCS,
HMIS, HMNZS, USS etc) in front of the name and make sure the spelling is right.
This applies both to ships and shore bases.
3. To find out about Royal Navy and some
United States Navy casualties, click on one or other of the first two major
www.naval-history.net. You can
also check the Commonwealth War Graves Commission site (Google search).
4. To find out about ex-Navy family and friends, you will need their
service records. Go to the Links page, and
there you will
find contact details for RN and USN service records. The RN record should
include ships and dates, and you can then research those ships on Naval-History.Net
and other sites. Note: some of these ships will be shore bases.
Good luck with your search.
