The Exeter Flotilla is an association of Retired Commissioned Officers of all ranks and specialisations of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, and their Reserves. The history goes back to the time before the Second World War.

Our patron is Commander Amphibious Task Group. The Flotilla meets at the Commando Training Centre Royal Marines, Lympstone, Devon.

There is a wide and varied social programme including eight lecture evenings annually, the speakers being Foreign Naval Attaches, senior serving Officers, historians etc. Other activities include visits to civil and military places of interest, a formal Annual Dinner, a golf match and dinner, stag lunches etc. The Trafalgar Service in Exeter Cathedral is organised by the Flotilla and is followed by a Civic reception. There are regular visits to ships. Close liason was maintained with HMS Exeter until she was decommissioned in May 2009, and we are now affiliated with HMS Defender.
Membership, at present about 200, may be of interest and benefit to Officers leaving the Service, especially those intending to work or live in the West Country. Contact and membership application is available in the navigation column on the Homepage.
