The Royal Hutt River Navy
The nautical branch of the Royal Hutt River Defence
Forces (RHRDF), the Royal Hutt River Navy (RHRN) was founded in 1974 and is
currently empowered by the Royal Hutt River Defence Forces Act of 1998
(revised from the 1988 version)
The RHRN is a non-combative service whose pacifistic aims
are encapsulated in its motto, freely translated as, “Let peace and justice
Whilst the RHRN supports and endorses the charitable and community work of the RHRDF, the Navy places importance too on memberships of, and participation in, major nautical and naval associations. In this way the RHRN officers can forge close links with other naval officers, contribute to the aims of such organisations, whilst increasing the visibility of the Principality.
The RHRN is able to call upon naval expertise from a number of its officers, including a world-renowned expert on submarine and surface warfare, and another who is a member of the Royal Institute of Navigation. Over the years many of our Members have previous service in the armed forces of the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States as well as other naval forces around the globe. One of our officers, now sadly deceased, was inducted into the prestigious Naval Order of the United States, another worked as a researcher at National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa, Canada.
