Submariners Remembrance Service

Submariners Remembrance Service

National Submarine War Memorial, Victoria Embankment London

This is an annual event. Usually the service is held on Victoria Embankment at the National Submarine War Memorial. This year due to bad weather, the service was held aboard HMS President. The weather had improved sufficiently by the end of the service for the wreath laying to be well attended at the memorial itself. The service was led by The Reverend Steven Brookes, The Rector of Liverpool, Chaplain to the Submariners Association. Music for the service was performed by The Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines. Attendance included Rear Admiral Ian Corder. The service was packed - unfortunately not everyone could get into the hall, nor even onto HMS President. Wreaths were laid by many, including Mrs Molyneux who said, "It was an honour to be there and to have been asked to lay the wreath on behalf of the Submariner Widows .... A very emotional day filled with tears, laughter and immense pride in the Service". Another, laid on behalf of The Submariners Lounge on Facebook. Those in attendance were not only Submariners, there were representatives, serving and retired, from the RAF, Royal Navy and Army. Photographs taken by Matthew Smith.
