The Richard Perkins warship identification albums form one of the most detailed studies ever undertaken of the changes to the appearance of Royal Navy ships.

The publication of this monumental work in a superbly produced multi-volume edition that captures all the qualities of the original. Every page is reproduced at full size, making the extensive handwritten annotation readable, while the fine-line drawings retain all the colors that Perkins used to denote appearance differences and alterations.

The fifth volume of the series is largely devoted to surface craft whose primary weapon was the torpedo: destroyers and their flotilla leaders, 1st- and 2nd-class torpedo boats, coastal motor boats, and motor torpedo boats; it also includes the Great War-era P-boats and the motor anti-submarine boats of the late 1930s.

This is a publishing event of the utmost importance for every enthusiast and ship modeler, who for the first time will be able to own a copy of a unique and invaluable reference work.
