Default Royal Navy Ships & Crew

There still seems to be some confusion as to what should be posted in this Section.

There are two questions that members should ask themselves before posting here.

1) Is my post about one single ship/class?
2) Have I completed a search to see if someone else has started a thread that I could add to?

If the answer to question one is "no" then it should go into the "Other Naval Topics" section.

As to question two, which also goes for all of the other sections. It is always better to keep one topic together to avoid duplication. Also if a post has a question in it. You may find the answer in another thread that has been posted previously.

Always put the ship that you are requesting information on, in the Title. It is no point putting "Petty Officer John Doe" in the title and then asking about "HMS so and so" that he served on. A lot of members are not interested in "Great Uncle Joe" who served on HMS Poppy, but are more likely interested in HMS Poppy and, hopefully gives you all, some or a little information that you require. Also it would be helpful, if possible, to add a year (preferably launch year) to the title. I have noticed that, for instance, there have been sixteen HMS Pelicans! So it would be helpful to know which one is being researched. If another Pelican is being researched then, by all means, start another thread. Ideally we want one ship one thread.

Of course, the name of the person should be in the title when posting in the Friends and Family section.

Thank you for your time
