This year, in order to raise public awareness, WRS Tech would like to join many other businesses and local authorities in recognising the vital work that Merchant Seafarers do by celebrating Merchant Navy Day.
Since 2000, Merchant Navy Day honours all the brave men and woman who kept our Island nation afloat during both World Wars, and celebrate our dependence on modern day merchant seafarers who are responsible for 95% of the UK’s imports, including half of the food we eat.
We have the largest ports industry in Europe and 75% of our exports are shipped from UK ports.
Therefore we will be highlighting the Red Ensign, the UK Merchant Navy’s official flag and joining the push to have Merchant Navy Day recognised as a national flag-flying day on the Government list and an official Day of Remembrance.
Therefore WRS Tech would like to say a big thank you to all current and former Merchant Seafarers.
