Our "Sea Classics" collection

Sea Classics

Sea Classics, v. 1, no. 1.


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...

Collection: General

Availability: mostly bound [the Society wishes to recognize the generosity of Commander Gery Sang USN (Ret'd)] some single.

Indexing: partial indexing by NMA: see details and also see our main catalogue entry.

We are collecting the few back issues of this magazine still missing, and have some duplicates for exchange. Please email us for further details.

This is currently (January 2021) a work in progess, to rationalise, facilitate and expand our existing pages at the Naval Marine Archive. Some pages are very recent, some date back twenty years and may or may not have been reviewed and/or edited recently; we appreciate any suggestions for improvements.
