The NHT is recording the Oral Histories of as many ex-service personnel as well as those still serving in the SA Navy - which includes the Marines.  At this time we have well over 200 oral histories on file in the NHT room which can be used for research.  If anyone would like to be interviewed and then added to the list of members that we have please contact Eddie ( or Glen (
Our reference library has grown into a very valuable and almost complete source of information that those that need to know can come and spend some time with us and look through all the books we have - fiction and nonfiction plus a very good collection of Janes.
We also have a permanent wreath now which saves a fortune and can be used at most ceremonies.
Dave (Harry) Harrison and Harry Croome were both awarded with life membership of the society for their unstinting and very valuable work that they do for the Society.  Dave has spent very many hours scanning and sorting through negatives and photographs and then researching them - a great job well done.

Harry is always on the go repairing, fixing, painting and generally looking after anything Naval and needs some TLC - something that does not happen in these cash strapped days.  Harry used to do this in his spare time when he still worked and now that he is retired he is busy all the time.  Thank you Harry.
