Our "Sea Classics" collection

Sea Classics


Our collection is complete up to February 2007, with the exception of Dec 1998 (which may not have been published) and May 2003; it also contains some "special issues" (detailed list.) This magazine deals with naval stories, mostly American, with a mixture of Navy, Merchant Marine and other aspects.

The cover of the "Premier" issue, Volume 1, Number 1 of June 1968, shows the QUEEN MARY leaving, for the last time, her home port in the UK for her final berth in California.

Articles in that issue also cover the USN pre-war carrier fleet, New Orleans shipping, some U-boat photos from WWI, naval gunnery in Viet Nam, and more...
