The Centenary Volume
Did our views matter? Did we tackle the important issues? The Trustees have commissioned research and analysis, by international experts, of the material in The Naval Review over the past 100 years. The author, Captain Peter Hore, will lead a distinguished team of contributors in creating a volume of about twenty five chapters which analyses and assesses significant historical events and issues as seen in The Naval Review
Could you be a contributor? Could you write about the Ministry of Defence in the Mountbatten years and, afterwards, about any aspect of personnel matters; or submarine development and strategy in the Cold War? The author is interested in seeing your proposal.
The Naval Review Centenary Fellowship Sponsored By Ultra Electronics
The Naval Review Centenary Fellowship is a new award for outstanding junior officers of Lieutenant rank or below in the Royal Navy. The Naval Review is partnered by the Royal Navy and the Royal Australian Navy and sponsored by Ultra Electronics. The new award is a secondment to the Royal Australian Navy, in Australia, for a six-week study period and is likely to be highly sought-after in the continuing professional development of Royal Naval officers. The first award will be in 2010.
The aims of The Naval Review Centenary Fellowship are to
- Encourage international understanding early in the career of a high-flying officer
- Maintain good relationships between the Royal Navy and the Royal Australian Navy
- Reward and encourage strategic thinking and persuasive writing in junior officers

The Clive Richards Prize
A generous gift from Clive Richards will recognise the bext published article by a member of Lieutenant rank or below with a prize of £250. Since 1982 The Naval Review has encouraged writing by junior officers through the annual Guiness Prize for which the funding has ended, but the Clive Richards Prize will allow us to continue our reward for good writing. Clive Richards will be contributing an article on his collection of Nelson letter in a future edition of The Naval Review - watch this space for the date!
University of Westminster
The Naval Review will collaborate with the University of Westminster in a major research project, supported by the University and led by the Professor Richard Harding, which will investigate the correlation between debate in The Naval Review and changes in government policy. The project is likely to launch in 2011.
We are actively seeking donations towards the costs of the centenary and we have now raised 98% of what we need.
