Defence of the Realm – Royal Navy

The Royal Navy

The Royal Navy  was formed under the 1707 Acts of Union when the English Navy absorbed the three-ship Royal Scots Navy in to their flotilla. Operating closely with the Navy are the Royal Marines who are the maritime infantry and with the Navy form the Naval Service of the British armed forces. Perhaps more than any other branch of the armed forces the Royal Navy has been for many centuries the most visible aspect of Britain’s influence operating all over the world defending her empire and interests.
