Ship Prefix

A ships prefix is typically an abbreviation found in front of the name of the vessel. Most (but not all) are acronyms and some have multiple meanings dependent upon the country of origin (particularly those of royal assent), though most of them are derived from a combination of the vessels propulsion and purpose.
