Find a branch near you

You don’t have to live near a Royal Marines Unit or establishment to be a part of the Royal Marines Association. With over 80 branches and interest groups in the UK and overseas, you can be sure to find a warm reception near you. »

Our branches are where our members get together and where local welfare advice is given. You can transfer to different branches as you re-locate, or visit other branches if you're travelling around. If you cannot reach any of our branches, joining our HQ Roll will keep you up-to-date and enable you to continue receiving membership benefits. Membership will also enable you to apply to join RMA Clubs and Societies.

    American US Marines

    “My fellow Marines, you have a unique opportunity to join with your Brother Royal and U.S. Marines from the UK in order to foster a brotherhood of Marines. Let me encourage you to get involved. I will join you on occasion.” - J Livingston, Major General USMC (Ret), Medal of Honor Recipient

    The American US Marines Branch of the Royal Marines Association is a virtual branch which aims to bring together both serving and former United States Marines and Royal Marines. It seeks to build close ties between our two Corps, encouraging membership from those Royal Marines who have served on exchange in the US with those of the USMC who have served in Royal Marine Units; indeed US or Royal Marines who have served together are encouraged to join such that we can encourage the bonds of friendship built through shared values and experiences in the service of our Corps and Countries.

    Branch President - USMC Major General James Livingston

    Branch Treasurer - USMC Larry Lewis

    To become a member you will have to read the rules on the group page but being part of this group requires mutual trust, authentic and expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private and due to the diversity of the group and its use of social media anyone acting in an inappropriate, aggressive or abusive way will be removed without prejudice. What's shared in the group should stay in the group unless sharing to promote the group with the all parties consent.

    Buglers

    The Buglers’ Branch of the Royal Marines Association is a virtual branch which aims to bring together both the serving and former members of the oldest Specialisation within the Corps.  It will provide a focal point for all in order to keep  members up to date with information about reunions, support and the current status of the serving ‘custodians’ of our proud heritage and traditions.  The branch is open to all serving and former members and their families.  Notably within this branch there is also the RMA Corps of Drums which provides the ability to perform under the RMA name, for former members and also to provide training to the next generation – ensuring the continued success and high esteem the Royal Marines have always been and will continue to be held as Buglers within the Royal Marines family.
