The Admiralty's specialist shipbuilding yard at Pembroke Dock produced over 200 warships for the Royal Navy, including 5 royal yachts, between 1814 and 1926. This long century, from the Napoleonic War until post-First World War, covered all the major changes in warship design and construction, from wood to iron and then steel, and from sail to steam. Here, Lawrie Phillips tells the story of this Admiralty town, its ships and the men who built them.
