From the dust jacket. Shore Establishments of the Royal Navy is a comprehensive summary of all named shore establishments and static ships of the Royal Navy from the beginning of the 19th century. The aim of this book is to fill a significant gap that existed in reference works. To do this has meant compiling over 2700 entries, and including the location of the establishment, and dates when it operated. Some existed for a few days, and others were planned but not commissioned. These latter have been included for completeness. Because the Royal Navy established bases abroad, the shore establishments of Commonwealth Navies have been included to clarify their position. Similarly, Commonwealth (and Free French, etc.) establishments set up in Great Britain in World War II have also been included. Nominal Depot Ships, a device required by the Naval Discipline Act, and which led to some shore establishments being "sunk", have also been included. Many establishments changed their names, and others their locations. Such details can be found here. At the end of the book is a gazetteer, so that readers can find which establishments were located at a particular place. The opportunity has been taken to incorporate unnamed Royal Naval Air Stations of World War I into the gazetteer. All this is tabulated in this gem of a book which is a must for any serious researcher.
