News: Navy Ordered Into Dock

20th November 1988: The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported that the Royal Navy had been ordered by First Sea Lord Julian Oswald not to become embroiled in the civil unrest in Britain and to retire to the Her Majesty's Canadian Dockyard at Halifax, Nova Scotia for the duration of the hostilities. Whilst there were a number of naval actions involving small coastal vessels during the war, the involvement of major naval assets during the conflict was negated by Oswald's order.
