The Club Website
After 21 years of my maintaining the Club website and entirely at my own expense (saving the Club at least 10k in the process) the Committee has, for some inexplicable reason, suddenly decided that I cannot be trusted to maintain it. The site and all its annual recurring costs have been transferred to the Committee. This forces them to re-create the whole site from scratch. unjustifiable lack of trust in me. A link to the new site will be made as soon as it is provided.

A number of entries in the Lost @ Sea Book of Remembrance were previously very sparse but thanks to extensive research by Peter Sharpe, sometime Enquiries & Research Officer of the Merchant Navy Association, many are now clarified.He has also been able to confirm that the bodies of Hopper and Horswell, both lost in the 1939 Liverpool Pilot Boat disaster, were recovered and buried ashore. They are therefore no longer recorded in the Lost At Sea Book of Remembrance.
