From Capt D. A. Parsons, MNI

Sir: Barbara Hoddinott (Letters, 3 May) refers to the efforts of the Merchant Navy during the Second World War. I am pleased to advise you that, far from being forgotten, there is a service of commemoration and thanksgiving for the Merchant Navy at 11am on 22 June. This will be held at the Merchant Navy War Memorial, Tower Hill, in the presence of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and is open to all.

In addition our organisation, the Merchant Navy Welfare Board, will be at Hyde Park this weekend and assisting the MN veterans for the Tribute and Promise/VJ event in London on 19 August.

Yours sincerely,


General Secretary
