The Association was formed in 1920 with the principal objective of recovering retired pay that was withheld from naval officers who had been recalled to service in the 1914-1918 War.
The Association was re-constituted in 1925 by Vice Admiral FW Caulfeild CBE (see main picture) and has evolved over the years to meet the changing needs of the members. Today ARNO has well over 5,500 members at home and abroad on both the Active and Retired Lists. Read our Constitution here
