Plymouth Merchant Navy Memorial
There is a project to build a Monument on Plymouth Hoe to the men and women of all nationalities who serve, or have served, in British registered vessels. This is rather than simply a memorial to those who died in the two wars and is registered charity 1167934.
We now have full approval from Plymouth City Council for the Hoe site - in front of the Royal Navy memorial - and for the monument style itself.
We now have a Crowdfunding video and this can be viewed on ;
If ex Union-Castle / B & C staff were able to make a contribution to the fund, it could either be made through that Crowdfunding site or directly through the Charity Treasurer - in which case it would be properly acknowledged.
Persons or organisations donating more than £1,000 would be invited to the commemoration ceremony which will be performed by Princess Anne as part of the Mayflower 400 celebrations in 2020.
Currently in progress is a series of seminars and exhibitions “Abandon Ship” from May until November 2017 aboard HQS Wellington in London
