Today , Sunday 6 September, we went to St Nicholas Church, the Sailors Church, by the Pier Head in Liverpool. There was a Service with many Lord Mayors from neighbouring towns and cities.and Attaches from the US and Canadian High Commision. about 300 men attended. after the Service we marched down to the Pier Head to the Battle of the Atlantic Memorial and another service,Then we all went to the Eldonian Club for a free lunch, including a good curry and rice with apple daddy and cream. and many pints were supped.. A good day out. Last year I got up and gave a speech with my Mersey Memories piece.

I like that church, my brother got married and had his kids christened there.
Not on the same day, I hasten to add.
