This valuable book fills a welcome gap in the history of the Royal Navy, specifically the role of the Royal Corps of Naval Constructors (RCNC) during the last half-century. The author served in the Eastern and Pacific Fleets during World War Two.This took place a little while after the responsibility for making feasibility studies of the proposed Type 42 destroyer ... that the navy could have a new class of destroyer provided that the cost of each ship did not exceed Ap11.25 millions. ... I pointed out that the cost saving would be much less than 1% of the cost of the ship.
