In recent years gas turbines have been introduced into operational warships of the Royal Navy as propulsion machinery for both high-speed craft and major warships, as electric generator prime movers, and for certain miscellaneous applications. Taking each of these applications in turn, the paper gives details of the important installation problems which have been met and the practical operating experience both ashore and afloat which has been obtained in recent years with eight different designs of British Naval gas turbines. In the general conclusions an attempt is made to assess the main lessons which have been learned from the recent operating experience with the Naval gas turbines described in the paper.
