NAA News – Archived

These are some of the old postings that were published before the new ‘Navy News’ daily news format was adopted by the RAN.

Over many years the NAA website was the only site that provided individual Navy News stories on a regular basis.  This practice has now be stopped and most current NAA news issues are dealt with in the NAA Main Notice Board or on the Facebook Page.
