The interests of most World Ship Society members range from passenger ships to cruise ships to cargo-carrying ships and to the Merchant Navy. However there are a large number of members whose interests tend toward the naval side of things. The Society’s Naval Committee caters for and develops the needs and interests of those members of the Society with predominantly naval interests.
