The Society for Nautical Research was founded in 1910 to encourage research into matters relating to seafaring and shipbuilding in all ages and among all nations, into the language and customs of the sea, and into other subjects of nautical interests.
The Society ensured the survival of Nelson's flagship by raising the Save the Victory Fund and has been closely associated with her restoration. It has assisted the frigate Foudroyant in her role of youth training and supported the return of S.S. Great Britain from the Falkland Islands to the dock at Bristol from which she was launched in 1843. The Society helped found the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich and the Royal Naval Museum at Portsmouth.
Publishes the quarterly journal The Mariner's Mirror [ISSN 0025-3359] and a likewise quarterly Newsletter.
