Over the past 100 years the Society has published more than 130 volumes, covering the period between the fourteenth century and the Second World War. Among the major figures covered are: Nelson, Fisher, Beatty, St. Vincent, Hood, Jellicoe, Somerville, Cunningham, Keyes, Collingwood, Anson, Hawke, and Vernon. A brief assessment of the subjects covered can only give a flavour of the breadth of the subject: campaigns, administration, technology, politics, law, signals, strategy and tactics. The Society's volumes, many of which are still available to members, form a unique and invaluable resource for serving officers, scholars and all those interested in the Naval History of Great Britain and the development of naval power generally.
The Society, which has charitable status, continues to flourish through the support of a truly international membership. At present members receive at least one volume per annum, often two, and the Society has an impressive list of titles awaiting publication.
Annual membership entitles all fully paid up members to receive one copy of all volumes published in that year, and to order copies of earlier volumes at reduced prices. The annual subscription of £ 30,00 is due on the 1st of January each year, and payable to the Membership Secretary.
