'Sea of Remembrance' 2008

Together We Will Remember Them!

7 September


Extract from Tony Attrill's news post on the Sailors' Society website:-

small red ensign planted in lawn "Last year the Sailors' Society planted 800 Red Ensign Flags for the Merchant Navy Day Service at Trinity Gardens. Each flag bore its own heart-warming message. Some remembered their loved ones lost during the war, others wanted to recognise our seafarers of today. The occasion was incredibly moving with cadets and veterans side by side on their knees together planting the flags. It was a truly remarkable sight.

This year we are encouraging more people to become involved by sending their messages on our Red Ensign Flags. We wish to give the Merchant Navy seafarers the recognition they deserve.

We invite you to write a message on our Red Ensign Flag (supplied in the pack you request) in memory of a loved one, friend or colleague, or someone who is presently away at sea."
