About Us

This site was originally established in 2007 as Save The Royal Navy – an online campaign to promote the RN. In 2021 we re-branded as Navy Lookout with a simpler focus on news and analysis.

We are an independent voice run by informed and interested civilians with contributors and supporters which include ex-forces personnel and academics. We have no direct links with the Ministry of Defence, or formal endorsement by the Royal Navy, neither are we aligned to any political organisation.

The site is funded by reader donations and the modest income from Google ads. We are open to carrying other commercial banner advertising but do not accept paid ‘advertorial’ articles.

We strongly welcome contributions from everyone and encourage comments on the articles Whatever your point of view, we welcome friendly and civil debate. (See our comment moderation policy).

We are always looking for new writers to submit articles for this site subject to our editorial guidelines. If you are interested please contact us.
