Merchant Navy Remembrance
 
Copied from COB

Please spare a thought for the MN vets as their contribution to the war effort in both world wars is sometimes lost due to the focus on the armed forces.
Atlantic Convoys, Arctic Convoys and much more.

30,248 merchant seamen lost their lives during World War Two, a death rate that was higher proportionately than in any of the armed forces

Heroes, each and every one of them. As you say, the Merch is often forgotten. I think itís more through naivety than anything malicious, but itís still sad. The impact the Merchant Navy had on our great country often goes unseen but should be celebrated.

Merchant Navy Remembrance
Out of Uniform but amongst the bravest men to defend our island and keep its lifeline open against impossible odds: the German U-Boats, the cold winters and the vastness of the ocean.
Until the yanks officially came into the war many merchant ships faced the long haul alone or with little protection from the enemy.

All respect to them. Our people would have starved without them.

Let's not forget the civilians across Europe who lost their lives.

I used to walk to work past the memorial in Trinity Square in London. Think of the Riverside nearly full.
