Royal Naval Reserve

The Royal Naval Reserve (RNR) has its origins in the 1830s, when a list was drawn up to identify men fit for naval service – and with seafaring experience – in the event of war. The aim was to booster the number of available troops for the Royal Navy, and, as time went on, men who had completed an initial five years’ service, were then placed in the RNR for a further seven years.
