Merchant Navy Day 2023

Since it seems 1939 3 September has been designated as Merchant Navy Day, and on this day a service is held and wreaths are laid at the Merchant Navy Memorial in  Trinity Square Gardens, near Tower Hill tube station, in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, and elsewhere.

Images:  upper, wreaths laid at main memorial (it is said that over 50 wreaths were laid); lower, wreaths on the monument ‘in memory of those Merchant Seaman who gave their lives to secure the freedom of the Falkland Islands, 1982’.
