THE STANDARD OF THE RFA ASSOCIATION


The national standard of the RFA Association is a powerful and unifying symbol which was approved in 2005 by the First Sea Lord. It was consecrated on the RFA Centenary on 3rd August with the moving prayer you see below. This is for use on important national occasions of ceremony and remembrance, and was paraded publicly for the first time at Tower Hill on Merchant Navy Day, the 4th of September 2005. An important day indeed, presided over by Commodore Thornton, and the ceremony included the consecration of the new Falklands Memorial to those seamen who lost their lives in that conflict. Many of those, of course, were from the Royal Fleet Auxiliary: The Centenary Scroll device reflects the date of consecration and gives recognition to the collective value efforts and sacrifice of those serving over the-last 100 years. In the following year the Plymouth and District Branch standard was consecrated on Sea Sunday, 9th July and the London Branch standard prior to Merchant Navy Day in London on 3rd September.

“We dedicate and set apart this standard to be a symbol of the life and service of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Association. Bless, O Lord all Members of the RFA Association, and prosper their work in support of the men and women of the RFA, and their families, through Jesus Christ, Our Lord”
