  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: List of senior officers of the Royal Navy
The head of the Royal Navy is the Lord High Admiral, the overall head of the Armed Forces is the British Sovereign with the two roles currently vested in the same individual, Queen Elizabeth II.
Royal Navy was a force designed for the Cold War - with its three ASW aircraft carriers and a force of small frigates and destroyers, its purpose was to search for and destroy Soviet submarines in the North Atlantic.
The Royal Navy is established under the royal prerogative and the head of the Royal Navy, known as the Lord High Admiral, is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (who is the overall head of the UK Armed Forces).

 USN Ship Naming
Ships armed with 40 guns or more were of the "first class"; those carrying fewer than 40, but more than 20, guns were of the "second class." The name source for the second class was expanded to include the principal towns as well as rivers.
In the case of ships named for individuals, an effort is made to identify the eldest living direct female descendant of that individual to perform the role of ship's sponsor.
While the Navy has attempted to be systematic in naming its ships, like all institutions it has been subject to evolutionary change, and the name sources of the Navy's ships have not been immune to this change.

The Royal Navy continued to provide blue water defence in the Pacific until World War Two, when expansion of the RAN saw the acquisition of aircraft carriers, and other large surface vessels.
Vice Admiral Russ Shalders is the current Chief of Navy and was appointed to this position in 2005.
Current deployments of the navy include: contributions to the multinational force in Iraq; support for the United Nations mission in East Timor; and a "regional assistance mission" with New Zealand in the Solomon Islands.

 GHOST SHIPS: The Latest in Stealth Ship Technology
Kockums claims that a 120-meter long ship has been designed that is comparable to the Visby's high stealth standards, so a future in which these ships patrol the oceans may be closer than we think.
The Visby may currently be in the lead when it comes to deploying stealth vessel technology, but the US and UK are busy developing their own variants.
As with the Visby, the ship's superstructure will have radar deflecting angles to cut down on detection, and it has been rumored that the ship will be able to artificially generate a mist to disguise itself as a bank of fog.

During World War II the Duke spent his time serving on a number of ships including HMS Ramillies and later on HMS Wallace, where he became First Lieutenant, second in command, at the tender age of 21, and took part in the Allied landings on Sicily.
Following in his father's footsteps, Prince Andrew chose a career in the Royal Navy after deciding it would be the "most challenging" of the Armed Forces.
However, he still holds enough ranks to run a war by himself: Vice Admiral in the Royal Navy, Lieutenant General in the Army and Air Marshal in the Air Force.

 Case study, Royal Navy - NAVYSTAR. New PCs : FUJITSU UK
The requirement was for PCs, servers, printers and network equipment from commercial sources that would work in the unique environment aboard ship, be reliable, and meet the standards required for equipment installations on their vessels.
Finally, every Royal Navy ship is a workplace that must comply with Health and Safety Standards, so all the equipment used had to be compliant and all Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) identified.
Before long, however, Fujitsu realised that the size of standard branded PCs was not suited to the Royal Navy environment and the commercial marketplace too volatile to maintain the stability and equipment roadmaps demanded by NavyStar.
