MVS Flags Up Support for Merchant Navy Day
The MVS has hoisted the flag to support Merchant Navy Day.
The event is organised by national charity Seafarers UK, to raise public awareness of the Merchant Navy’s massive contribution to the life of Great Britain.
Participants can show their support by flying the Red Ensign.
The MVS Northumbria Unit proudly raised their Red Ensign Flag with a simple ceremony of remembrance at their boat’s berth at St Peter’s Marina in the east end of Newcastle.
Head of Unit, Angela Carrington was proud to fly the flag in honour of those who gave their lives in the Merchant Navy.
“We proudly fly a red ensign defaced with our MVS crest on our patrol vessel.
It’s great to be a small part of the UK’s merchant fleet and we are mindful of the sacrifices given in two world wars and beyond by the men of the Merchant Navy.”
