5.0 out of 5 stars Know your Navy, 2 Oct 2009
Ex-Navy. I love this book. Compact A5 size good quality glossy finish. Has all the pennant numbers, silhouettes, ship names and pictures for each class of Warship or Auxiliary in colour and/or B&W, type of armament, tonnage etc etc. Lists all Navy weapons and Aircraft at the rear and even obscure craft. I usually get one every couple of years to keep up to date and see how the Navy is developing. Excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for locating parish information, 2 Oct 2009
Once you know what County your town/village is in from the maps, the county index will then tell you where to look for the original registers (A,B,C etc explained at the end of each county index). The index will also let you know if there are IGI records available for your town, Census years available 1841,51+. Additional resourced information is also mentioned for each county. This book will save you a lot of time and give a lot of guidance. Well worth the investment.
