SOUTH AFRICA AND IMPERIAL NAVAL DEFENCE

Richard Cornwell

Abstract


There are various themes which emerge in a consideration of South Africa's involvement in British naval policy. There is the expansion of the British empire itself, from its Atlantic beginnings into eastern seas and its century-long conflict with France. There is the theme of India, and the fluctuating fortunes of a trading company. There are the changes in marine technology and the world's balance of naval power. All of these broad themes must be considered if the South African contribution is to be seen in its proper context.

Keywords


South Africa's involvement in British naval policy; 'Santa Maria'; domination of the spice trade
