About


RNOC

FIRST ESTABLISHED IN

1739...

Under the name of The Amicable Navy Society, our objectives were to ‘afford relief to distressed officers of the Royal Navy, their widows, orphans, mothers and sisters’. Society membership cost one Guinea per annum, with life membership available for 10 Guineas. While it is no longer possible to join the society, the objectives, albeit widened and modernised, remain.

TODAY

2018

The RNOC exists to ‘Provide relief to persons in need (whether or not members of the society) being officers and former officers of the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines and Queen Alexandra’s Royal Naval Nursing Service and officers and former officers on the Reserve Lists, together with their spouses, widows, widowers, families and dependants.’

 

Every year, we provide one-off grants and long-term financial support. We treat every case that comes in on its merits, then provide funding to meet the person’s specific needs and situation. This flexible, individual approach really does transform lives.

 

RNOC shares its London office with The Association of Royal Navy Officers (ARNO) and is administered by the Director, Commander Mike Goldthorpe Royal Navy.

 

Please help us by making a regular or one off donation to RNOC.
