Fly The Red Ensign Day Event 2019

Fly The Red Ensign Day Event 2019

The Red Ensign was raised at 11.00am at the Town Park next to The Post Mill Centre and a message from HRH The Earl of Wessex KG, GCVO was read by Cllr Ian Garrett. The event was followed by tea, coffee and cake inside the centre.

This is Merchant Navy Day to honour the brave men and women who kept our island nation afloat during both World Wars and even peacetime. The Red Ensign, or "Red Duster" as it is affectionately known, has been the recognised flag of the British Merchant Navy since 1854.
