Recently uploaded at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kTTeBqWnAA is the first of three hour-long videos, produced and narrated by Royal Navy historian Roland R. Smith around 15 years ago, and compiled from original footage taken aboard RN ships during its Indian and Pacific Ocean campaigns between 1942 and 1945.

On a sad note, Gordon Smith, creator of the excellent website, naval-history.net, passed away on 16 December 2016 (aged 75).

Very sad to hear Gordon passed away. I have never met or spoken to him, but I still frequent the site often en enjoy the wealth of naval history that he took the time and effort to compile and publish ...
