The Talbot-Booth system of ship recognition has been used extensively since the early 1930s by the British Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and some NATO countries. Many amateur enthusiasts also find the system invaluable. This second volume covers all those vessels with engines aft and bridges right forward; each of the 2,600 ships is named and there are over 1,400 drawings, all to a scale of 200 ft: one inch. The ship recognition system makes up the first part of this volume and this itself is divided into sections: distant view recognition, medium view recognition, and close view recognition; tonnage and size; age and appearance; and flags. The second part consists of the ship reference Section, where each vessel is drawn to scale and coded details are given of name and flag, year and country of building, gross registered tonnage, dimensions such as length and draft, machinery, speed, former names with year of changes and sister or similar ships, with ex-names and year of change.
