During the late 17th century, following the Restoration, the name Royal Navy was officially adopted, as well as the prefix His Majesty’s Ship, and later, Her Majesty’s Ship. The first recorded use of the abbreviated form HMS was in 1789, in respect of HMS Phoenix. From 1707 to around 1800 HBMS (for His Britannic Majesty’s Ship) was also used. Submarines in Her Majesty’s service also use the prefix HMS, standing for Her Majesty’s Submarine. The Royal Yacht Britannia, which was a commissioned ship in the Royal Navy, was known as HMY Britannia. Otherwise all ships in the Royal Navy are known as HM Ships, though formerly when a distinction was made between three-masted ship-rigged ships and smaller vessels they would be called HM Frigate X, or HM Sloop Y. British government ships which are not in the Royal Navy have other designations, such as RFA for ships in the Royal Fleet Auxiliary.
