The role of the Royal Navy as policeman of the world, involved it in a number of brushfire wars, anti-slavery expeditions and flag waving exercises. Naval brigades fought at Sevastopol during the relief of Lucknow, against the Maoris in New Zealand and the Boers in South Africa. Naval gunboats patrolled the Zambezi, the Yangtse and the Red sea and served against the Dervishes on the Nile.
