Sussex Military History Society provides a friendly atmosphere in which members are free to discuss all things military. Annual membership has been providing value for money at just £9.00 since 2007.

If you're not yet sure about taking out a full membership with us, then you are more than welcome to attend on a meeting-by-meeting basis - it's up to you!

If we've already convinced you, then please fill out the application form - if you still need some persuasion, then read on about what you get as a paid-up member of SMHS.

The Benefits of Membership

  • A chance to make regular contact with like-minded enthusiasts
  • Attend talks given by recognised authors/experts in military history
  • Discounted entry to SMHS monthly meetings
  • Monthly SMHS newsletter
  • Endless opportunities to get involved!

More than just a monthly meeting society

Your level of participation in Society activities is entirely up to you:

  • Perhaps you're only able to attend the occasional meeting?
  • You may prefer to sit quietly on the sidelines, or...
  • ...perhaps you want to be down the front giving a talk yourself?
  • Maybe you're young, enthusiastic and willing to get digging?

Get involved in SMHS

The Society's current membership reflects all of the above levels of involvement. SMHS is evolving all the time and the opportunities for you to be involved in what the Society does are increasing. Aside from our monthly meeting, we also offer:

  • Guided walks lead by SMHS members
  • Organised visits to historic sites not accessible to the public
  • Military archaeology
  • Participation in military shows/charitable events
  • Study seminars

What have we missed? Are you an expert on a military-related subject/activity that we're not doing? If Sussex Military History Society is not representing your particular interest, then join up and you can get us involved in what you do!
