Seaferers Service 21.10.2012

This morning, appropriately on Trafalgar Day, we were at Portsmouth’s historic Anglican Cathedral for the annual Seafarers Service.



Meeting at the Royal Naval Yacht Club in Pembroke Road, Elaine went to the Cathedral while I joined the Lord Mayor and others in processing behind a Naval Cadet band.

The service was led by the Dean of the Cathedral, the Very Reverend David Brindley, with readings by the Lord Mayor, Councillor Frank Jonas, and Ian ward, the Vice Chairman of the Sailors’ Society. The address was given by reverend David Potterton, the Chaplain to the Sailors’ Society.
