History

On this page we want to show some relevant and interesting items of The Society's history. We will be adding to this page as we find more items of note. If you have or can supply any interesting articles please let the Society know.

There follows a selection of archive papers showing the early struggles of the Society for the recognition and reward of naval engineers together with some historical internal Society leaflets.

Origin, Aims and Objects

This pamphlet was written and published by RNEBS General Secretary, R.H.Crick, in March 1962. Click on the icon below to open up the 4 page pdf document in a new tab. Unfortunately the scan is a tad blurred but the text can be read with a bit of patience. If anyone happens to have a copy of this pamphlet, I would be obliged if you can sent it me for scanning. I will of course return it to the sender.
