The exhibition features striking images that capture the lives of Royal Navy sailors and Royal Marines as they serve on vital operations around the globe. The pictures have all been taken by the Royal Navy’s own dedicated photographers, who are behind the lens capturing the significant moments as the Senior Service carries out missions across the world’s oceans, in the skies and on land, from Arctic to desert and jungle.
These skilled photographers – all of them serving sailors or Royal Marines – have been recognised for their stunning imagery in the Royal Navy’s annual photographic competition, the Peregrine Trophy. The hardy bunch of photographers follow warships and commandos wherever they go, sharing their important missions with the world through still images and video, providing a behind-the-scenes look at life in the Royal Navy, from emotional homecomings to frontline ops.
