Since 2000, Merchant Navy Day on 3rd September has honoured the brave men and women who kept our ‘Island Nation’ afloat during both World Wars, and celebrated our dependence on modern day merchant seafarers who are responsible for 95% of the UK’s imports, including much of the food we eat, most of the fuel we burn and virtually all the products and goods we take for granted.

Haverfordwest Town Council will be supporting the Merchant Navy by flying the Red Ensign, the official flag of the UK Merchant Navy, on their building from Friday 1st September 2017 until Monday 4th September 2017.

For more information about Merchant Navy Day and the Seafarers UK campaign is available from their website www.merchantnavyfund.org

The Merchant Navy Fund is administered by Seafarers UK (King George’s Fund for Sailors), a Registered Charity in England & Wales, No. 226446, incorporated under Royal Charter.
Registered in Scotland SC038191.
