Quick Reference

An obsolete slang name among sailors for the Royal Navy. It is said to have derived from an 18th-century press-gang officer named Andrew Miller who impressed so many men into naval service during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars (1793–1815) that he was said to own the Royal Navy.
