Subject to the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, and the laws governing the defence of the RSA and Departmental Direction:

  • the core business of the SA Navy is fighting at sea
  • the mission of the SA Navy is to win at sea

Its Role

It is the Cape Sea Route that is the Navy’s ward. It is the Navy’s duty to police it, to watch it and to care for its users – the mercantile fleets of the world. For this they work, and while doing it, the grey ships can strengthen the bonds of friendship with our neighbours, and can make new friends, and can hold all that is best in maintaining the brotherhood of the sea. Then they are doing their proper appointed peacetime task. They are the ‘Grey Diplomats’.

One thought on “SA Navy

  1. This is all about the Naval HQ in Pretoria! We live in Simon’s Town, a world renowned naval harbour with half the town occupied by the Fleet and the Naval Base but no local contacts or names!!! Go figure!
