Who’s It For?

It’s for everyone, whether you are currently serving or have served in the Naval Service; it’s also for your family and friends. We know that once Naval Service has been experienced, life is never the same again, but in the RNA, it can be shared and enjoyed for the rest of your life.

As a member of the RNA, you’ll have access to social and welfare advice, involvement in our many social or fundraising events. If you’d like a taster of what we’re about, our local Branch Secretary would be delighted to host you as a guest at our next branch meeting.

You will then be able to use any of the RNA Branches across the world.
