Commemoration of Royal Navy

20 Sep 2019  Fri

The Royal Navy of Britain is an association that is responsible to keep Britain flourishing. It balances out the oceans, keeping the sea exchange that is the backbone of the UK economy streaming. It likewise goes about as a gatekeeper and an ambassador, as a compassionate power for good, and a peacekeeper on the worldwide stage.

This year would be its 500th year. In this way, a progression of eight stamps to praise 500 years of the Royal Navy have been unveiled by Royal Mail. These stamps include Royal Navy dispatches since the beginning, such as the incredible vessel, HMS Victory. She is best known for her role as Lord Nelson's flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805 during the Napoleonic Wars.
