The Aims of the Fleet Air Arm Association are: To assist members in matters relating to welfare. To maintain a close relationship with the Service and to inform the general public of the past traditions and present function of the Fleet Air Arm.

In 1985 three branches, Birmingham, Hanworth and Gosport, met and agreed to form a National Fleet Air Arm Association. The Association now has eighteen branches and a membership of just under a thousand. Branches cover an area from Yorkshire (Leeds) in the North to the Solent (Lee on Solent) in the South, from Great Yarmouth in the East to Bristol and District in the West.

Today, branches support the Fleet Air Arm Memorial Church, the Fleet Air Arm Museum, the Fly Navy Heritage Trust and the Royal Navy Historic Flight at RNAS Yeovilton. The Association was actively involved with raising funds for a Fleet Air Arm Memorials, sited on the Embankment in London, and the National Arboretum, Staffordshire.

The 100th Anniversary of Passchendaele

On Friday 10th November 2017 we are launching a unique remembrance tribute in Winchester, where over 2500 handmade paper flowers and poppies will create a sea of remembrance and each one will carry the name of either someone who has served our Country and passed away as the result of this service. Also there will be other tributes to those Veterans who are now at rest over the years. Its is a tribute that I feel is very appropriate and we are still taking names from families and friends of those veterans to add to this amazing tribute. If we reach 4000 names that would be awesome

The 10th November also marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of Passchendaele and to mark this occasion, we have arranged a service of remembrance at St. Luke's Church, Mildmay Street. Winchester at 1800hrs and this is also the venue for the sea of remembrance.

Also if you can circulate the information attached we would be grateful as hope people will come and visit the display over the weekend

As part of the display, we can also have a table to highlight the work of the RNA if that is appropriate as we are keen welcome all ages and its a good way of promoting the RNA in the heart of the community, would it be possible to have a couple of RNA Standards attending the service?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes
