If you wish to apply to join, please post within the Recruitment Forum with the following information to allow us to assess your application.
I suggest the best way to do this is for you to seek out the SLRN at sea and ask if you may sail and fight alongside him/us, so we may see that you will fit into our ethos and organisation. Ideally we would wish to see you in more than the one battle and as such this process may take a few days. Once we have mutual experience of one another (for indeed you may decide you do not like us!) please then ask an existing member of SLRN if they will recommend you in your application – thank you.
History of the Royal Navy
The official history of the Royal Navy began with the formal establishment of the Royal Navy as the national naval force of the Kingdom of England in 1660, following the Restoration of King Charles II to the throne. However, for more than a thousand years before that there had been English naval forces varying in type and organization. In 1707 it became the naval force of the Kingdom of Great Britain after the Union between England and Scotland which merged the English navy with the much smaller Royal Scots Navy, although the two had begun operating together from the time of the Union of the Crowns in 1603.
Before the creation of the Royal Navy, the English navy had no defined moment of formation; it started out as a motley assortment of “King’s ships” during the Middle Ages assembled only as needed and then dispersed, began to take shape as a standing navy during the 16th century, and became a regular establishment during the tumults of the 17th century. The Navy grew considerably during the global struggle with France that started in 1690 and culminated in the Napoleonic Wars, a time when the practice of fighting under sail was developed to its highest point.
