Royal Navy Visitors IIRoyal Navy Visitors II

In the second part of this series we commemorate additional Royal Navy vessels that visited Pitcairn and contributed to improving the life of resident Pitcairners. From providing medical services and judicial duties, to even providing a source of names for new born children, the ships have become part of Pitcairn’s history. This issue highlights six more vessels that visited between 1898 and 2001 and have not previously appeared in a Pitcairn stamp issue.
