Merchant Navy

The Merchant Navy is the name given to the UK's commercial shipping industry. It is made up of shipping companies that own and manage a wide range of different types and sizes of ships. The British merchant fleet operates worldwide and includes cruise ships, container ships, ferries, tankers, bulk carriers and other specialist vessels. In 1928 King George V created the title 'Master of the Merchant Navy and Fishing Fleets' This is hoe the 'Merchant Navy' came into being.
