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.

Membership is open to all serving and ex-serving ranks who served without dishonour in a recognised Fleet Air Arm Trade for a minimum of six months.

Dear All,

The Chaplaincy at RNAS Yeovilton will be holding a service at 1030 on Wednesday 14 June to mark 35 years since the end of the Falklands conflict. Could you please disseminate this information to those within your group and ask anyone interested to contact me with brief details of their Falklands service by 14 May. Please don't think this is limited to just those at 'the sharp end' – we are all of one company, we all played out part in some way or other. I will send out further details to those wishing to attend after the deadline. Seating will be limited to 100, so early responses are encouraged! If you think of any group or individual that I have not included in this email but whom you think would like to attend, please let me know.

Best wishes,

Tina Cullen - Verger
