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.
Norm's old Up Persicope site had until recently been mirrored on the this site. As the content was not 100% accurate and there has been little to no access to it over the last year, it is no longer provided. Contact the Webmaster if you want a copy of something from there, the Webmaster will maintain a copy for the forseeable future.
We have an urgent need for volunteers from the C Boat community to provide input to the Coxswain's Grot! If you want to be heard and have stories to tell or information to share - email either the Coxswain or the Webmaster. Don't be shy, you will be helping fill a huge gap!
