The United States Department of the Navy's description is somewhat different to the Royal Navy according to it's General Order No 135 issued in 1911 as a formal guide to Naval Terms described a Naval Station as "any establishment for building, manufacturing, docking, repair, supply, or training under control of the Navy. It may also include several establishments". A Naval Base by contrast was "a point from which naval operations may be conducted" [2]
