    Default Merchant Navy Day, 5th September 2010

    I should have posted this info before today, but better late than never, I suppose.

    Merchant Navy Day will be celebrated in Liverpool with a service at St Nicholas' Church, Chapel Street, at 12 o'clock.
    After the service there will be a procession across to the Pier Head where a wreath will be laid to commemorate the many seamen who lost their lives at sea.

    I always go there every year then end up in the Eldonian Club for Lunch and a few bevies, but unfortunately I cannot get there this year. I did a speech there in St Nicholas Church two years ago, `Mersey Memories`.

    The service was well attended, in church and at the Seamen's Memorial. [IMG][/IMG]

    I also go every year, the turnout was well attended as always. I got a little plastic covered remembrance card from a veteran which I will always treasure. I reads,

    In war and peace they plied their trade, over the angry seas.
    Remember them as here you stand, besides these placid quays.
