HISTORY -- The Merchant Navy has been in existence for a significant period in British history, owing much of its growth to British imperial expansion. As an entity in itself it can be dated back to the 17th century, where an attempt was made to register all seamen as a source of manpower for the Royal Navy during times of conflict. However that registration of merchant seamen failed, and it was not successfully implemented until 1835.

Thule's first passenger steamer was the Bele of 1879.
