Gala Dinner Information

The 6th Annual Battle of the Atlantic Gala Dinner will take place on Thursday, May 3th, 2018 at the Canadian War Museum, and is once again being organized by the Naval Association of Canada with the support of the Royal Canadian Navy.

The evening will commemorate the contributions of the members of the Royal Canadian Navy, Royal Canadian Air Force, and the Merchant Navy who served in the Battle of the Atlantic, as well as extending our appreciation to the sailors and the air men and women serving today. We will also, for the first time at this event, honour naval veterans of the Korean War.

The Battle of the Atlantic was a true coming of age for a still-young naval service, when it found its sense of purpose and identity. The men and women who participated in that battle continue to inspire those who serve today. 

Dress of the Day

The recommended dress of the day for the Gala Dinner is

 Military  - Mess Dress (no. 2)

Civilian - Black Tie


The Commander, RCN has authorized retired naval personnel to wear Mess Dress to the Gala Dinner.

Retired RCAF Personnel who wish to  wear Mess Dress must request individual permission from the Commander, RCAF.
