Among the features, Conrad Waters provides an assessment of HMS Queen Elizabeth, the RN’s newest and largest aircraft carrier. There is the rise and fall of the small 1928-built motor ship Glen Strathallan, the ship which could not be sold.

On the ferry front, Noble Earls part 2 recalls Sealink’s Channel heyday and profiles the classic ferries of the era, Earl Harold and Earl Granville. John White’s photos shows small tugs working on the busy rivers Waal and Maas in the Netherlands in July 2016.

And Nick Hawkins profiles the Russian cruiser Aurora, survivor of the battle of Tsushima of 1905, which is now preserved in St Petersburg and which played a pivotal role in the Russian Revolution.
