From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Maritime Volunteer Service (MVS) is a charitable maritime training organisation in the United Kingdom. It was formed in 1994 as a response to the disbandment of the Royal Naval Auxiliary Service (RNXS).

It's stated aims are:[1]

  • To stimulate the interest of volunteers from all walks of life in maritime affairs.
  • To provide high quality training in maritime skills to recognised standards.
  • To be an interesting and useful spare time activity that is fun, sometimes exciting but with a strong emphasis on safety at all times
  • To maintain a corps of trained volunteers capable of supporting maritime authorities ashore and afloat at maritime events or emergencies.
