The Society is open to membership

The Society has produced a number of publications available to members and the general public. For a complete list please enter.
Th Society will undertake research on relevant maritime matters both at a superficial level, and indepth. A nominal charge is applicable to cover costs. Contact the society to determine the rate applicable.
