Only slight wear.;  DJ in Mylar, bright, solid book ; B&W Illustrations; 1 x 9 x 6.25 Inches; 369f pages; The name carried by a ship has far-reaching significance. It has historical and geographical references; it may have political, social or propaganda overtones; it links the ship with its class and type. To the ship's company the name of the ship and its nickname identify it as a community or it is the name of their home.This book covers over 900 names of Canadian naval vessels, shore establishments, and some RN ships, from 1910 to the present. Each name covered includes the origin and meaning of the name, its sometimes-complex process of selection, its pennant numbers, and dates in commission and whether the name was assigned an official badge. A comprehensive reference painstakingly researched from primary sources, this is an invaluable book for those interested in naval history and research. Winner of the John Lyman Award.
