MVS Marks Remembrance Sunday
The MVS has been marking Remembrance Sunday at services and events right around the country.
In Newcastle, MVS Northumbria led a procession of vessels up the River Tyne before stopping between the iconic Millennium and Tyne Bridges to take part in the two-minute silence at 11am.
Head of Unit, Angela Carrington who placed a special wreath into the river said, “This is the fifth year we’ve arranged the parade of sail. It’s an appropriate way for us to remember those who gave their lives in conflicts and in particular those who were serving in the Royal Navy and Merchant Navy.”
The Medway Unit were invited to attend the Royal Navy Memorial by the local RNR Unit.
It was the first official engagement of this kind since the formation of the Unit.
Members of the Severn Unit took part in the Annual Remembrance Parade in Tewkesbury which involved marching to the Abbey for a Service and then to the Cenotaph.
HOU Nic Price said, “This year we were very well represented in the parade with 16 members turning out”.
