Royal Australian Naval Brigade Service


The Royal Australian Naval Brigade (RANB) was a division of the Citizen Naval Forces during World War 1 and the immediate post war period. Members were either volunteers or compulsory trainees who served shore duty or sea duty.

Attested members of the force rendered operational service if they:

  • volunteered for sea duty, or
  • were in Naval expeditionary forces overseas.

Attested members who served on shore only rendered eligible service but not operational service.     

Attested members of the Royal Australian Naval Brigade must be certified members by the RAN.
