This site has been created for all those men and women who have served at sea in the Royal Navy. In it you will find over 1800 short run limited edition artworks of Royal Navy ships past and present, plus many foreign naval and civilian ships, all created by ex-RN Cook and digital artist Nick Barwis.
We also have well over 500 framed ships crests, FAA Squadron Crests, RFA, Army Regimental and RAF Squadron crests on site.
The Navy has two things over the other two services - Its men (obviously!) and its ships. They're where we worked, laughed, slept and played. As we get older our memories fade a little and those we do retain become rosier the thicker the glass in our spectacles becomes! Hopefully this site will offer Jack the chance to rekindle those happy memories when we were young, daring and pretty carefree. We drunk way too much, and spent far too much time in front of the Jimmy, but we laughed like drains at the incredible humour on the mess deck and primarily and above all (and against popular belief that we were there to protect the nation) we were there to get the girl!
It's pretty ironic that most of us are now more anchor faced than we
ever were when we served in the Andrew. I hope you like the art.
