100 Years of Australian Submarines
1914 - 2014
Submariners worldwide are a special breed, rarely understood by mere mortals and never understood by skimmers. Submariners of all nations understand this and show respect to each other, knowing the hardship and danger that each has faced to achieve membership to that elite club to which they belong.
The Association's aims and goals are: •To keep alive the unique "esprit de corps" of the Submarine Service; •To establish and maintain a charitable trust, being a welfare foundation;•To assist one another as occasion may require and to encourage social activities;•To liaise with kindred organisations, both nationally and internationally; and,•To educate members about their entitlements and provide access to Department of Veterans' Affairs advocates The Association maintains a close relationship with several overseas Submariners' Associations.Membership is open to all submariners, regardless of the navy in which they served.
NOTICES: We have been contacted by Carol WIlson (Secretary NSW SAA) with a request for help with her latest fundraising with Team Bandaged Bear
. Carol writes:
Please help me meet my goal of $1000.00 to further help The Cancer Centre for Children at The Children's Hospital at Westmead. At age 72 this will be my 8th City2Surf, who would have thought?? This is my personal fundraising effort outside of Bob (Tug) Wilson's Walk for Kids with Cancer.
I am participating because I believe in the dedication and work done by the amazing Doctors, Nursing Staff, Researchers and everyone else behind the scenes who make the Hospital operate (excuse the pun) on a daily basis and I Volunteer 3 days a week.

Thank you in advance,

As you may have noticed, we have been progressively merging the old Up Periscope to the SAA site. The two sites are now more than ever working together to provide full benefit to the Association and our members. Whilst the sites will still be able to be viewed separately, most of the personal content will now be posted to Up Periscope instead of both locations. http://www.submarinesaustralia.com/upperiscope2/index.html to go to the new version.
HMAS Rankin has a new video showing her trip to RIMPAC currently posted on Facebook. Instead of just sending you to there to view it, we have gone one better. Click on this link to view it here.

How we came to be..…
"Like the destroyer, the submarine has created its own type of officer and man, with language and traditions apart from the rest of the service, and yet at the heart,unchangingly of the Service"
