Last year's winning Doctoral thesis by Dr Sara Caputo (University of Cambridge), focused on the foreign seamen who served in the Royal Navy during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars (1793-1815). Peter Garland's winning Masters dissertation (University of Portsmouth) brought together the technological, operational and political factors that contributed to the Royal Navy failing to establish a lead in wireless communications (1919-1945).
