In Pictures: Royal Navy photographic awards

The role of the Royal Navy Photographer helps capture the significant moments as operations are carried out across the world. Here are this year's winners of the Peregrine Trophy

The hardy bunch of photographers follow warships and commandos wherever they go, sharing their important missions with the world through still images and video, providing a behind-the-scenes look at life in the Royal Navy, from emotional homecomings to frontline ops.

Now these skilled photographers — all of them serving sailors or Royal Marines — have been recognised for their stunning imagery in the Royal Navy’s annual photographic competition, the Peregrine Trophy.

In the last year, the photographers have been there on the frontline as the Royal Navy continued to deliver during the Covid-19 global pandemic, protecting the UK’s interests at home and abroad.
