With the demise of Geocities in October 2009 I needed to move my web site "Navy in Peacetime", originally created in 2001, which sought to detail the organization of the US and Royal Navies at various points in their history. This site is the result. I will gradually repost all the information located at my old site and hopefully find the time to post new information as well.
As with my original web page, I readily admit to not being an artistic person, so the layout of these pages will be very basic. I will make every effort to add appropriate pictures and graphics, with an emphasis on ship pictures from the same era as the pages they appear on. (In other words, no pictures of USS COLORADO from 1943 should appear in the 1923 Fleet listings). If anyone has public domain images they would like to submit, I'd be happy to use them.
I will make every effort to correct typos and outright errors, and appreciate those of you who point out any mistakes found on these pages. In some cases, my sources do not list the names of certain commanders. If you have that info, I'd love to replace the "??????" currently being used. Eventually I hope to put up a Links page, and would be happy to list any relevant sites. Well, that's my ramblings, enjoy the site and let me know what you think!
I have been adding and updating information on World War II Submarine commanders. In addition, I have posted a page on the 1825 USN and 1839 USN Commanders, both of which were researched by Jürgen Döscher. These are both pdf files which require the free Adobe Reader to view. (9/28/13) I added most of the USN Atlantic Fleet from April 1919. (10/1/13)
