Welcome to the Association Website. The HMS Belfast Association was formed in 1998 from past Crew members and is for members who served on HMS Belfast at any time no matter in what capacity

We also welcome Associate Members. An Associate Membership is open to any person having an interest in the Association, and is willing to abide by its Constitution, Aims and Objectives and while acting as an Associate to conduct themselves in a proper manner

We have young sailors (At least they were young when they were on board) and three Admirals as members and every rank, trade, and discipline between.

Our stated aims is to hold together the comradeship engendered on board. We try to ensure the welfare of our members as far as we are able and to support the Imperial War Museum in the upkeep of this Iconic Ship

We meet each March at our Annual General Meeting which we try and make a social affair. We also hold our Trafalgar Night Dinner on board
