Pembroke Dock and the Old Navy: A Bicentennial History

Be the first to review this product

The Royal Dockyard at Pembroke Dock produced over 250 warships for the Royal Navy, including five royal yachts, between its founding in 1814 and its closure after the First World War. Prior to this, no ocean-going ships had ever been built on the south shores of Milford Haven, where the most complex piece of machinery used was the horse-drawn plough.

In this authoritative and splendidly illustrated work, naval historian Lawrie Phillips (Editor of The Royal Navy Day by Day), who was born and bred just outside the dockyard walls, tells the story of this royal yard, its ships and the Pembroke men who built them.
