Footage from the ceremony on Sunday at St Nicholas Church in Liverpool.

Our thanks go to all Indefatigable members attending on behalf of the IOBA on the day, ‘Marc Hardman 1961’ and ‘Malcolm Williams 75/76’ for their Standard Bearer duties, ‘Russell Jones 55/56’ and not least, ‘Angie Williams’ who laid the wreath on behalf of the IOBA.

A great effort by all, considering the circumstances being the COVID19 year!

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.”

Indefatigable Liverbird 2020 Poster or Tattoo!

Following on from the last Post: The Indefatigable OBA Newsletter No1 Front Cover of the ‘Indefatigable Liverbird’ drawn in 1983, I felt that the IOBA for the 2020 COVID-19 reunion absence, would do something different!

My son Nick has drawn for you an updated version in Pointillism of the 1983 Indefatigable Liverbird, with the idea to either print to A3 size, or even as a tattoo!

The image below is in low resolution 335 KB but can be acquired in high resolution 10.1 MB from the IOBA Shop for a small donation of £5.00 which will go towards the 2020 MSSC Award (Awarded in 2021). I hope you like it.
