LIVERPOOL SHIPS AND SAILORS

MERCHANT NAVY DAY SUNDAY 6TH SEPTEMBER 2020;

A special service took place in Liverpool to mark Merchant Navy Day with a wreath-laying ceremony, where Indefatigable Old Boys were in attendance.

The annual event raises awareness of past, present and future Merchant Navy seafarers and also remembers the 36,000 men who died at sea during World War Two.

The public service took place in the grounds of Liverpool Parish Church in the City Centre at midday.

There was also a focus on seafarers role during the Covid-19 pandemic.

In attendance, John Wilson, CEO of the Liverpool Seafarers’ Centre, spoke to the congregation about life onboard for mariners who have kept cargo moving in and out of the Port of Liverpool.

Civic dignitaries from across the City region, included the Lord Mayor of Liverpool Councillor Anna Rothery, along with current and retired seafarers (including IOBA members), as well as others who represent the work of the Merchant Navy today.

The Rector of Liverpool, the Reverend Canon Dr Crispin Pailing, who lead the service, said: “The last few months have been challenging for everyone, but essential supplies and much of the food in our shops, are there thanks to the work of the Merchant Navy.”
