Following the sad news from Buckingham Palace that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has died, the National Archives, alongside all other parts of the Civil Service, is now in a period of mourning.

FTNA has decided to postpone the online talk due to take place on Wednesday 14 September. Captured Ships, Capturing Ships: an overview of prize taking in the age of sail will take place at a later date.

The FTNA trustees would like to extend their heartfelt sympathy to The Royal Family. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II faithfully served the nation as our Sovereign during her long, happy and glorious reign.
