Raising the MVS Standard in Gravesend


A dedication service has been held for the new Standard recently obtained by the MVS Gravesend unit.

In order to show their support, members from the MVS City of London visited Gravesend aboard Londinium 1 and joined in the service on the deck of the Massey Shaw Fireboat.

Reverend Jacqueline Littlewood, who is also an active member of the MVS Gravesend unit lead the service in front of the people of Gravesend, including a number of local VIP’s, whilst members of the Merchant Navy assisted with the formalities and bugle playing.

Head of Unit Michael Hegarty raised the Standard to the delight of the MVS members present, as RVO Tim Corthorn appropriately saluted the ceremony.
