Our Mission:

The Naval Tankermen Association was born of a need for mateship and a chance for Tankermen and women to renew old memories and happy times during their Naval service.

Profile Association Profile:

Membership of the Association is open to anyone who has served or is still serving aboard, any former or presently Commissioned Tanker or Supply type Vessel in the RAN, RN, RCN, RNZN, USN or Royal Fleet Auxiliary, this includes all ex crew members of RFA Tide Austral / HMAS Tide Austral / HMAS Supply. Membership is also extended to those personnel of the Royal New Zealand Navy who served aboard the following ships (HMNZS Lachlan, HMNZS Otago and HMNZS Canterbury) during the Mururoa Atoll Atomic Tests in 1973, who would not have been able to conduct that mission without the assistance of HMAS Supply. Tankermen are not born, but are certainly untroubled to follow the “T” pattern for its a well-known fact that words starting with 'T' can usually be akined to a Tankerman including such words as TOUGH and let’s not forget TACTFUL whenever the word “Oil spill“ is mentioned or the inevitable TENACIOUS
