The Polish Submariners Association, founded in Gdynia in 1981, brings together the fans of this particular form of naval arms. The Association’s members include both active and former submarine sailors as well as submarine fans. Since the very beginning, the Association’s chief aim has been to propagate the history and traditions of Polish submarines, their military achievements, specificity and uniqueness of service.
The inauguration meeting that established the Polish Submariners Association took place on 2 July 1981. As an autonomous constituency, the Association became part of the Maritime League (now the Maritime and River League), reactivated on 22 April 1981, and remains in this organisation as a Club of the Maritime and River League.
