CAMMELL LAIRD BUILT WARSHIPS

Alistair Lofthouse

Be the first to review this product

Cammell Laird can trace their history back to the late 1820s when William and John Laird produced their first ship, a paddle steamer built for Irish Inland Steam. A pioneering company, they recognised early on the advantages of iron ships and by the 1840s, the Admiralty were ordering iron frigates from the company. Through the years many famous ships have been launched from their slipways into the Mersey - the battleships Audacious and Rodney; the cruiser Caroline and the third and fourth aircraft carriers to bear the name Ark  Royal.


This volume contains over 170 full page B&W images, many from the Cammell Laird archives, supported by extended captions.

The latest addition to the NavyBooks series charting the history of British Warship Builders.

The yard has also produced many submarines from the early ‘E’ class, through the WWII ‘S’ and ‘T’ classes to the Polaris missiles armed  Renown and Revenge. Although today the yard no longer builds warships, the name lives on. They have recently completed a series of blocks as part of the Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier programme and have a 25 year MoD contract to support and maintain 11 Royal Fleet Auxiliaries.

This volume contains over 170 full page B&W images, many from the Cammell Laird archives, supported by extended captions.
