A Letter from the Chairman

Since the formation of the Royal Navy Clearance Divers Association (RNCDA) back in January 2012, the Association has seen its ranks swell to a healthy membership of close to 600 members.

For the RNCDA to be a success, it relies on serving and former Royal Navy Clearance Divers along with our extremely generous  benefactors, sponsors and associate members to support the committee and the aims and objectives of the Association.

These are listed in the RNCDA constitution (but are not restricted to) :-


Maintaining contact between serving and former members of the Diving Branch (The Branch)

Fostering esprit de corps, comradeship and the welfare of the Branch and perpetuating its deeds.

Preserving the traditions of the Branch including the practice of understatement, humility and modesty.

Perpetuating the memory of those members of the Branch who have died in the service of their country
