Out of interest, did anyone attend the Merchant Navy Day celebrations at Tower Hill London on 4th September 2005 or even know it existed?. After years of lobbying, the Merchant Navy Association(to which I am a member)formed in 1989, achieved a National Merchant Navy Day to be held every year, the first being held on 3rd September 2000.

Michael, if I am still around next year I will post the date of next years Merchant Navy Day on this site. Looking at my diary I would say it will be on Sunday 3rd September again at Tower Hill. David

Michael and David it was mentioned by a couple of our ship mates here on the board, I even posted a picture of the Red Duster flying from my flag pole at home that very day. Check gallery.

Great to hear it Jeff. I go to London because there is not a branch of the Merchant Navy Association on the island or south coast to my knowledge, although there are most likely ceremonies closer to me that I am not aware of. David.
