British Navy Sailor O.C.C. (Rifts Earth):

The British Navy is among the oldest Navies in the world and has a proud and illustrious history. Many famous naval battles throughout history were fought by the British Navy. Battles like the defeat of the Spanish Armada, Battle of Trafalgar, Battle of Jutland, the Hunting of the Bismark, and the Battle for the Falklands are but a few of the famous battles the British Navy fought in. Many admirals names echo through the Centuries including Drake, Nelson, Hood, and Beatty to name but a few.

While the British Navy lost its place as the most powerful Navy in the world during World War Two, it never lost its pride. The British Navy Sailors were highly and were among the best trained sailors in the World. There have been many changes over the years. The British Navy was always a leader in new techniques and technology and this continued and the British Navy became more high tech as the years went by. These include such items as the angled flight deck on carriers. Like most modern militaries in the later part of the Twenty-First Century, the navy had no gender bias.

The crew of the ships and submarines of the Ark Royal battle group follow this O.C.C.
