The Instinctive Place to Meet

RMA Logo

This year is the start of the five year modernisation agenda for the Royal Marines Association.

The vision is to establish the RMA as the premier Service personnel’s association through its UK and overseas Branches.

The mission is for it to be the instinctive first place to which the Corps family turns for camaraderie and support – wherever in the world you may be.

It’s the right time to join the RMA.  Be part of it and join our Branch. We have veterans as young as 25 and as old as 92.  We are all Royal Marines keeping the link alive.

We meet every third Friday of every month.  Join us.

See joining instructions at the top of the page!

The Last RV of the Year

We had the last mess gathering on Friday 19 December which finalised a great year for us.  Enjoy Christmas and the New Year and we all hope to see more Royals serving and former serving joining us during 2015.  Watch this space for 2015 events!  Keep safe.

Next meet up in the mess is the 16th January at 20.00 in the RAFA Goldthorn Road, Wolverhampton.  See you then Lofty.

Great News!  The Wolverhampton Branch is getting a steady increase in membership numbers.

Q.  Why are people joining?
A.  Simple, the Bootneck experience!

Royal, this is our last social meet of the year and you are welcome to join us in the bar at 8pm on the 19 December at the Royal Airforce Association building, Goldthorn Road, Wolverhampton for a drink a laugh and a yarn.  Bring your missus or an oppo, we’re putting on a bite to eat as well, it might not be fancy but I’ll bet there will be a mince pie or nine in there somewhere.

Don’t be put off by the unknown, you will be greeted like an old mate.

For you IT warriors you can stay in touch with us on our facebook virtual branch.  Royal Marines Association Wolverhampton iBranch.

This ain’t a knitting circle and we don’t give recipe tips, but we do respect who we are and help our own.

The RMA is changing so go on Lofty, give us a go.

Have a Bostin Christmas



Branch members are off to Scotland as a celebration of the 350th year of the formation of the Corps.  As well as being a short holiday with all the activities that a Scottish break can offer I want to say what a privelage it is that on the significant date, the 28th October we will be visiting the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge with one of our lot who actually earned his green beret at Achnacary where the the first commandos during WW2 trained.  Larry Southall a bootneck legend, friend and loyal supporter of the RMA, I know he has never been back since he was demobbed so it will be a trip of special memories.  OAMAAM!RM CAP BADGE
