  • Cheerfulness. Make humour the heart of morale.

Why our members enjoy being part of the RMA

I am giving something back. In my first job I relied on the Marines for security. I am now in a position with my work and lifestyle to help. I have been involved with helping a lad find a job in London, the local branch and fundraising... I am now starting to focus more on the welfare side of things. It is nice to help someone and see it make a difference.
Being able to assist and support the Branch with all their endeavours. It certainly helps being a serving member as we have access to more areas and SME's when it comes to organising events... It all helps.
*Some individual branches may also charge a small subscription.
