This volume provides the first comprehensive history of education and training for officers of the Royal Navy in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Educating the Royal Navy 1702-1902 includes the establishment of the Royal Navy’s first naval academy, the commissioning of the officer training ship HMS Britannia, and the conduct of education at sea.
