Message from the Chairman

"The Royal Navy has been part of this country's life for centuries, safeguarding its well-being and security, contributing to its wealth, its industrial and social development, its language and being a force for good in the world. The Royal Naval Museum and HMS Victory are part of the Royal Navy and record and illustrate the traditions and history of this Service with the purpose of showing what makes today's Navy one of best and most respected in the world. The Royal Navy is and has always been only as good as the people serving in it which is why there is an emphasis on the sailor as well as the ships which are their home as well as its weapon of war."
