                                             WELCOME

                             A message from our President 

Welcome to the Royal Naval Safety Equipment and Survival Association. Open to all serving and former serving SE ratings and technicians or those that are or have been closely associated with the branch, the association provides a platform for social interaction and professional updates to all members. An integral part of the wider Fly Navy Federation, the association and it's members enjoy a range of benefits such as regular news letters in the form of the highly informative and amusing 'DUNKIN TIMES" 

There is also an annual reunion and of course the opportunity via facebook to catch up with old shipmates and meet new friends.

As a former SE rating, I am honoured and proud to be the association president and would like to encourage all serving and former branch members to join.

Membership costs are minimal but the benefits of keeping in touch and finding old friends are immeasurable and I look forward to seeing you at the reunion or even on horsegaurds parade for our annual march past on rememberance day.

John Scivier 

Lt Cdr RN (RTD)

     APPLY FOR HM ARMED FORCES

                  LAPEL BADGE

 
 

The UK Armed Forces Veterans’ Lapel Badge was launched in May 2004 by the
Minister of Veterans, to raise the profile of veterans by assisting the wider
public to recognise them.
The first veterans badge was issued to Lord Healy, a veteran of the Battle for Monte Cassino, on 10 May 2004, which initiated the roll out of the badge to the Second World War veteran generation. Since then eligibility to apply for the badge has been extended in sequential

phases to all veterans. This has now closed the gap between those who apply for their badge and those who receive it automatically on leaving the Services.

The badge is an enamelled, engraved, and pinned, lapel badge featuring the words “HM Armed Forces – Veteran”, which encompass the Tri-Service, Anchor, Crossed Swords and Eagle motif. Its symbolism is intended to unite all veterans in recognising the commonality of their service, to encourage a sense of unity and community between surviving veterans and to ignite public recognition of current veterans  and their continuing contribution to society.

Eligibility Criteria
All those who have served in HM Armed Forces.

Exceptions
Veterans who served in Armed Forces of other Countries and those who served alongside HM Armed Forces are not eligible (e. g. Canadian Navy or Royal Australian Air Force).

Posthumous requests
The badge is a survivors badge and therefore is not issued posthumously.
The only exceptions are War Widows and Widowers who are in receipt of a War Widows/Widowers Pension paid by the
Service Personnel and Veterans Agency. This is in recognition of the fact that their death was due to their military service.
