The Red Ensign
Mary attended the Fly the Red Ensign for Merchant Navy Day at the Quadrant on Thursday 3 September.
The Red Ensign flat was raised by the Chairman of North Tyneside Council, Councillor Gary Bell.
Mary said “I am particularly pleased that North Tyneside has decided to commemorate Merchant Navy Day by raising the Ensign at the Council Headquarters. Today is a chance to remember the contribution made by Merchant Seamen in both World Wars and to think about the importance of the Merchant Navy to our island, even today”.
