This Naval Staff History, prepared by the Naval Historical Branch of the Naval Staff, covers the period immediately after World War II and the Royal Navy operations to prevent illegal Jewish immigration into Palestine, at that time under British Mandate from the United Nations. The Palestine Patrol, as it became known, illustrates clearly the problems facing navies conducting operations other than war, in particular those involving maritime embargo measures.
