A SMALL AND QUICK QUESTIONNAIRE ABOUT R.N. WEB SITES

TO BYPASS THE QUESTIONNAIRE AND GO STRAIGHT TO NAVY THINGS CLICK HERE

BROWSING [or Surfing] the Internet is usually objective, and it is thought that the vast majority of those using the medium rarely wander away from their main interest[s].  Indeed, that is the reason for having a facility in which we can store our FAVOURITE websites, and those stored, along with their respective cookies, are visited time after time. When we do wander away, we tend to look at [and subsequently purchase] sites selling white goods, holidays, ebay articles etc., although few, I would think, would put these sites into the FAVOURITES folder.

When it comes to Naval things, rarely do we bother with anything other than Royal Navy sites and the USN, RCN, RAN, RNZN, SAN [and others, particularly European] are disregarded as not being relevant. This approach to browsing misses many good and informative sites.  Moreover, we miss so much of the 'home' market by not visiting such sites as the Imperial War Museum, the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Naval Museum and others.  There is evidence that many users stick with their alma maters and pay repeat visits to their Association[s] web site[s], joining in forums, viewing notice boards and gathering data about pre and post reunions, oblivious that there are other sites which break away from the parochial nature of those linked to Associations, to display Naval things in the broader sense.

This questionnaire is designed to gather information on the habits of sailors [past and present] and of the civilians also visiting naval sites.
