Royal Naval Medical Branch Ratings & Sick Berth Staff Association


The 2024 Reunion Weekend took place in Portsmouth

An extremely successful and enjoyable weekend was had by all at this year’s AGM and Reunion Dinner which was held at the Royal Maritime Hotel in Portsmouth (Home Club).

The Reunion Dinner was a very special occasion for members. The three Medical Branch Military Cross recipients – Kate Nesbitt, Liam O’Grady and Harry Robinson were invited to the dinner as guests. The guest of honour was Commodore Alison Hoffman – Head of the Royal Naval Medical Service and our Patron – Captain Lee Hazard was also in attendance.

We are already looking ahead and starting to plan the 2025 Reunion and AGM, so watch this space
