Welcome online to the
Royal Naval Association Cyprus..

We meet once a month, with the exception of August, in the Garrison Officers' Mess, Episkopi; usually at 1900 for 1930.

Meetings take the form of updates on the business of the Branch with inputs from the committee members and the Royal Navy. There are speaker's presentations on interesting aspects of the Service and related topics plus a Raffle on completion. The meetings are conducted in a light hearted atmosphere enjoyed by all.

Anyone may join who is in sympathy with the aims of the Royal Naval Association namely: UNITY, LOYALTY, PATRIOTISM and COMRADESHIP.

Full members (shipmates) are those who have served in all ranks and specialisations of the Royal Naval Service including the RM, WRNS, QARRNS and the RESERVES.

Associate shipmates are those who have not served in uniform but include wives, widows and anyone such as those who have worked with the Service and have the above stated sympathies.

Until 2007 the Cyprus Branch of the RNA was the largest outside the United Kingdom with the exception of that in New South Wales. In that year it was felt that a second branch should be commissioned to cater for shipmates living in the Larnaca and Famagusta areas and so was formed the Eastern Branch.

There is a good social calendar which includes a Trafalgar Night dinner. A bar is always available together with light refreshments at a token price.

We have a lot of fun and raise cash for the Central Fund plus donating to the Royal Naval Benevolent Trust, the Royal Marines Benevolent Fund, the WRNS Benevolent Trust, the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Children’s Fund as well as the local Sea Scouts. Anyone who is a Shipmate or Associate Shipmate is eligible for help from the Association should they fall on difficult times.



Normally the second Wednesday of the month.

Next regular meeting:


RNA/RMA (Cyprus) ‘Lunchtime social’
