Welcome to the RNEBS

All members of the Engineering Branch who are currently serving in the Royal Navy are eligible to join the Society.

Who are we and what we do

The RNEBS supports the Engineering Artificers and Technicians of the Royal Navy. The Society was set up for the promotion of intellectual and general welfare and the provision of Death or Invaliding Benefits for Members. Any member of the Engineering Branch serving in the Royal Navy is eligible to join the Society.

While the Society no longer publishes the Naval Engineering Review the Society Members’ Bulletin is published twice a year and contains articles and news about Naval Engineering and general interest. We also publish the latest comments and news from the Society and provide you with ways to contact us.
