Introduction by

Admiral Sir Jonathon Band KCB ADC

First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff

I am very pleased to be writing the introduction for Broadsheet 2007. Following some constructive criticism of previous issues, this year’s publication concentrates on factual articles, written in plain English, to provide a more straightforward and tighter focus on our business. The opening article on operations demonstrates in spades that the naval service is working exceptionally hard across the globe, delivering significant capability. We are still engaged in live operations in two theatres, maritime security operations, intelligence support to operations, capacity building around the world and provision of the continuous at sea deterrent. We are working to improve interoperability with coalition and NATO forces, as well as conducting fishery protection, counter drug operations, and surveying in 3 of the 5 oceans.
