WORLD SHIP SOCIETY

Since its founding by a small group of dedicated ship enthusiasts in 1946, the World Ship Society has grown into the largest and most prestigious international organisation dedicated to maritime and naval history. Today the World Ship Society is noted for its extensive list of publications, including the highly regarded journal, Marine News which together with its naval companion Warships are bywords for accurate information. As well, the organisation maintains a significant library and collection of photographs for its members and researchers. Branch meetings, held throughout the world, allow members to share their knowledge, experience, and joy of the shipping and naval industries. From the young to the elderly, the membership is diverse and reflects a wide range of maritime or naval history. Yet all share an abiding love for the ships that travel the seas.

MARINE NEWS

Provides comprehensive and convenient listings of merchant ship activity for enthusiasts – some 10,000 entries per annum covering launches, name and ownership changes, details of casualties and demolitions, all available as a 64-page digital magazine delivered to members’ computers around the of each month and backed by an annual Index.

MARINE NEWS SUPPLEMENT

The monthly digital supplement to ‘Marine News’ was been introduced to allow use of supplementary photographs grouped under the title of the news section in which they occur in “Marine News”, Fleet Lists and long feature articles covering modern and historical subjects. The Digital Supplement takes nothing from the main journal and is a bonus.
