The RFAA Offices in the Semaphore Tower have been re-assigned to BAE Systems and our Archive and registered Charity Office have been moved to

Room 15
Building 1/078
Stony Lane
PP 15
HM Naval Base
Portsmouth
PO1 3NH

The address is our archive location and the official Charity address.  This address will be infrequently checked for mail and all correspondence should be directed to our home addresses as appropriate.

I have been promised some photographs which I will add to this page when received.

The new property remains within the secure area of the Dockyard, which is a pain but on the bright side it is very inexpensive.
