ARLG London and South East visit to the Army and Navy club

The Army & Navy Club was originally founded for former and serving officers of the British and Commonwealth Armed Services, and their immediate relatives. Founded in August 1837, the year Queen Victoria acceded to the Throne, the Club was formed to meet the needs of the many army officers wanting to join a Service Club, most of which were already full. The great Duke of Wellington said he would become neither a patron nor a Member unless membership was also offered to officers of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. Hence, the "Army Club" became the Army and Navy Club.
