Flag Raising for Merchant Navy Day - 3rd September

Flag Raising for Merchant Navy Day - 3rd September

On Friday 3rd September at 10am the Red Ensign flag will be raised by the Deputy Mayor - Cllr Tina Reavey to mark Merchant Navy Day. Everyone is welcome to join her by the War Memorial.

3rd September 1939 marks the first major British maritime casualty, the merchant vessel SS Athenia, torpedoed just a few hours after hostilities were declared, with the loss of 128 passengers and crew.

Although many hundreds of merchant ships and thousands of seafarers would meet the same fate in the years to come, 3rd September is now enshrined as 'Merchant Navy Day' to honour the brave men and women who kept our island nation afloat during both World Wars, and even during peacetime faced – and continue to face – the more routine perils of violent storms and mountainous seas.

The Red Ensign, or 'Red Duster' as it is affectionately known, has been the recognised flag of the British Merchant Navy since 1954. » Less
