Naval Heritage Trust
Naval Heritage Society
The Naval Heritage Trust (incorporating the Naval Heritage Society) has as its sole object the preservation of our Naval Heritage.
The Naval Heritage Trust was appointed as a Conservation Body by Heritage Western Cape in 2008 with responsibility for listed buildings in the West and East Dockyards of Simon's Town.
Projects in hand are:
1. The preservation of the SAS Assegaai - the last of the Daphne class submarines which will come ashore at the Naval Museum and be opened up to the public.
2. The publication of books which all have a link to the Navy and those that served in the Navy.
3. Oral History of the SAN by recording memories of those who have served;
