Sister Organisations

The society maintains close relations with a number of other institutions and organisations in the field of maritime heritage. We maintain close relations with the National Maritime Museum and the National Museum of the Royal Navy, having played substantial roles in the early history of both bodies. These are reflected in the presence of representatives of the two museums on the society’s governing council and in the regular use of both institutions as venues for society meetings and events.

We have particularly close fraternal relations with two organisations operating within the UK, who also provide representative members to Council.
