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.
Commodore Bob Trotter OAM RAN (Ret’d) FIEAustSadly Commodore Bob Trotter suffered a stroke yesterday forenoon (28 Jan 2021) and was immediately hospitalised at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth, WA. Details of the injuries suffered from the stroke are not yet available and will be advised when released by the family. Visitors to Bob are limited at this time but hopefully that will change in a day or so.
We wish Bob a strong and swift recovery.
