Merchant Navy memorial and boating ourselves
Despite the terrible weather the Merchant Navy memorial was still held, although it was relocated to the Seaman’s Mission on Hannell Street. Our boys did a wonderful job of helping and hoisting the colours on the 75th anniversary of the sinking of the SS Iron Chieftain during WWII. Afterwards they enjoyed some time afloat on Lake Macquarie thanks to Ryan Jones. Looks like it was a great afternoon.
