The Red Ensign is flying at the village flag pole to recognise Merchant Navy Day. You can find out the full story here….http://www.burghwallis.org.uk/blog/merchant-navy-day-3rd-september-2017/
On this merchant Navy Day, I very much hope you will support this campaign by Seafarers UK to remember the sacrifices, salute the courage and support the future of the often unsung personnel of our merchant Navy. Too often they often forgotten or invisible service, by raising the Red Ensign you would ensure that at least on this day they are remembered. Your act will mean so much to their families and to the retired, but most especially to those that sea.
