Message Text: I went to the MNA rememberance service Sunday the 5th Sept, at Tower Hill, London;and was amazed at the huge turnout of old sailors that were there, some of 'em as as old as me and a lot that were older, and still as sprightly as ever.It must be the good living 'at does it. The service was excellent and we sung the hymns with gusto, the Royal Marine Band leading us off.I met quite a few lads and lasses in the pub after the service, when all the reminicing was done, thanks to the lads from Kent, Hull & the lass from the newly formed branch in Harrowgate(with only 8 members)I hope to see y'all next year. and a special mention to Betty the WREN, who could sing like Vera Lynn,and looked like Petula Clark.
Thanks to eveyone concerned with this event for a wonderful weekend. I hope to do it again

Message Text: I am trying to locate a gentleman by the name of Raymond Luthman. Raymond was in the Merchant Navy in the 1960's and at that time he lived in the Knowsley area of Lancashire/Merseyside. His mother and sister were both called Mary and his parents also lived in the Knowsley area. I would be most grateful to anyone who may recognise his name or may know his or any of his family's whereabouts? The search is for a very dear friend of mine who is trying to organise a reunion with Raymond's sister, Mary, who they have not seen for 40 years. I would deeply appreciate any information which anyone may have.

Message Text: AB Arthur Fry was awarded a BEM in 1945 for his experience during WW2 as a merchant seaman. Arthur died in 1987 in Bristol and was cremated later in June and then buried elsewhere. He may have been buried at sea. Perhaps shipmates in the Bristol area might be able to advise his last resting place. Best Wishes

Message Text: Last year I walked around England for Cancer Research. I'm now in the process of writing a book on the 5 month event. Within the pages of the book a parallel journey is being chronicled that describes my life as a wartime kid and the repercussion of that era including evacuation etc. At 16 I joined the Merchant Navy, shipping out on the Blue Funnel's SS Alcinous from Liverpool in 1952. My memory of Liverpool itself are vague so if anybody can give me an idea of the dock we sailed out from I would appreciate it. The East India docks spring to mind but I am not sure.
