Need Our Help?
Leaving the Royal Navy? Then shipmates are here to help with contacts and support.
Royal Naval Association web sites (home pages for associations throughout the UK)
Help is at hand. With such an established maritime history, it comes as no surprise to us that many of you want to get in touch with lost shipmates, trace the naval history and medals of relatives, or simply seek welfare advice.
While we unfortunately cannot help you find lost friends and relatives, or access ships' records, you may find one of the organisations on the links on the left useful.
Find a branch near you. You don't have to live by the sea to be part of the RNA; we have 353 branches throughout the UK and 32 branches abroad. Even if you cannot reach a branch, you can always join our HQ Roll to be kept up to date on the latest RNA news and events.
We also have a network of 32 affiliate clubs which you can pop into at any time. Just contact RNA HQ firstname.lastname@example.org for more details of these clubs.
We are a family of 20,000 members across 385 branches in the UK and overseas, we are a family of current and former Naval Service personnel, relatives and supporters of our country's navy.
Whether we are catching up with friends at our regular social events, fundraising, advising on welfare and employment matters, or just providing an arm around the shoulder, our natural willingness to help others stems from the tradition and camaraderiethat only Naval Service life can instil.
