Branch Notes - May 2019

Our May meeting saw the return of Richard Osborne who gave the first part of a presentation on the history of the Royal Navy between Suez and the Falklands. Beginning with an overview of the post-war fleet, Richard explained the political and military pressures on fleet rebuilding before describing the Suez conflict itself. The evening finished with a discussion of the lessons learned from Suez, and their effect on the fleet’s shape in the 1960s and 1970s. The talk was highly informative and engaging, and it was particularly interesting to learn about the technical innovations in aircraft carrier design through the period. Many thanks to Richard for his efforts in writing and delivering the talk, and we look forward to Part 2 in 2020.
