Royal Marines Historical Society Application Form

Membership of the Royal Marines Historical Society is open to anyone with a genuine interest in Corps history.

Existing members include serving and retired Royal Marines, family and military historians, militaria collectors and many friends of the Corps. We all have in common a desire to see the heritage and history of the Royal Marines protected and shared.

Members receive two issues of the Society’s illustrated journal, The Sheet Anchor, which contains articles and news of interest on Royal Marines history. Members also receive a copy of the Society’s annual Special Publication on a particular detailed and well researched topic. Three newsletters are distributed each year.

The Annual General Meeting is held in the Corps Museum at Eastney, Southsea, after which lunch is followed by a talk on a Royal Marines historical subject. Subjects covered over the past few years have included ‘Gallipoli’, ‘Royal Marines in the Gulf War’, ‘Kenneth Alford, Musician Extraordinaire’, ‘The Falklands Campaign’, ‘Commandos in Italy in WW2′, etc. During the AGM the RMHS presents award in recognition of outstanding contribution to Corps history.

An Annual Dinner is held in Portsmouth each year to celebrate the Corps birthday, 28 October, on the nearest Saturday.
