About the Naval Heritage Trust

The Naval Heritage Trust (NHT) was established by a small group of people in 1994 who believe it is important to ensure that our Naval Heritage was not lost through lack of interest.

The Naval Heritage Society is open to anyone who has a genuine interest is preserving, learning and contributing to South African Naval Heritage.

Library

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.

Book Donations

Help us build our library by donating your pre-loved nautical or History books.

Oral History

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. Contact us if you would like to contribute.
