The Royal Navy & National Security

We have informed the Naval Staff of our work and they have not commented or provided input.  Nor have they discouraged us.  Nor have we had access to classified material.  We are conscious, therefore, that some of what we say may have a different perspective to their own.  We hope not, but the reader should bear this possibility in mind.  If the papers assist in understanding the maritime problem and invite questions, then we will all be satisfied.
