We will be marking the 152 years since the founding of the Society with a Reunion Dinner to be held at the Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth on 22nd June 2024.

The dress code will be black tie but this will not be a formal mess dinner, and therefore no mess rules will apply. We cordially invite you to bring your partner with you.


As we did for RNEBS150 there are dedicated web pages on this RNEBS website set up for expressions of interest, the list of attendees the menu, ticket sales, seating arrangements etc. These web pages will be released for viewing when appropriate. By hovering the cursor on highlighted RNEBS152 menu bar at the top of the page you will see the other available pages in the dropdown list.

Tickets will be available from April 1st 2024:  >> Click here to access <<

Once you have purchased your tickets, please let us know what your menu choices as well as your Class Number, so that we can best organise the seating plan. Also, please let us know if you have any particular allergies.
