Roger has also taken the time and trouble to produce waterproof PWSTS wreath inserts. If you attend a service in the future and wish to lay a wreath please contact me if you would like a PWSTS insert.

Thanks Roger.

For general circulation.
 
On June 5th next week I will lay a wreath in Remembrance of the Merchant Navy sailors who were killed during the D-Day Landings on June 6th 1944 and during the weeks that followed. This will be done during a Remembrance Service in the afternoon at the Royal & Merchant Navy Memorial in the British Garden of Remembrance in Caen. The MN wreath I will lay, at the same time as a Royal Navy representative lays his wreath.
 
On 6th June in the evening (approx. 6 p.m.), I will also lay a wreath during the Main D-Day Remembrance Service, which will be attended by Royalty, in remembrance of the 2,450 Merchant Navy sailors who were killed during Operation Neptune on D-Day and during the weeks that followed. This is a major event and will be covered extensively by the BBC in a series of live broadcasts on that day.
