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.
