About the Royal Naval Association

Selby Royal Naval Association would like to invite any serving or former Royal Naval, WRNS, Royal Marines, QARNNS, or Royal Fleet Auxiliary personnel to come and join us. We meet on the last Friday of every month at Selby Working Men's Club, Selby, North Yorkshire.

With over 20,000 members across 385 branches in the UK and overseas, the Royal Naval Association are a family of current and former Naval Service personnel, relatives and supporters of the Royal Navy.

...... Once navy, always 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 camaraderie that only Naval Service life can instil.

Everything we do is inextricably linked to our core values:


Our core values:


Shared backgrounds and equality in rank. We share the same bonds, the same mindset, and even the same language (Jackspeak!). We are all equal. We are the heart and soul of the Royal Naval Association.


To each other and our dependants. We will always support and look out for each other. Our loyalty is to all our shipmates, our local communities, the personnel and dependants of the Naval Service, along with other charities or organisations with naval connections.


We are proud to serve and proud to represent our country and the Naval Service. Our pride in serving our country never leaves us. Nor do we forget those who have fallen for our country or who fight now. We are deeply honoured to represent them on both a national and international level.


Friends in fun, fellowship and need. Your shipmates will always be here for you, whether it's about a job, ideas for a fun day out or just an arm around the shoulder. We will never leave you or your dependants in despair.
