Merchant Navy Day

MN Day
Tomorrow 3rd September is Merchant Navy Day, this is being commemorated at Fenland Hall by FDC. I spent some 25+ years at sea. I am proud to have supported our armed forces in various conflicts around the world and in my younger days being part of the Red Cross support group in various zones, including Vietnam, Eritrea, Bangladesh and Biafra to name a few. Towards the end of my career I was the Senior Support Engineer on Cruise Ships. Tomorrow is our tribute to the vast number of Merchant Seamen who lost their lives in 2 World Wars.
In WW2 over 30,000 men were lost – a death rate that was higher proportionately than in any of the armed forces.
