Glasgow Seafarers Service

The annual Seafarers service was held in Glasgow Cathedral to celebrate Nelsons Victory at Trafalgar and to honour all seafarers from the Royal Navy, Merchant Navy and the Fishermen of our great nation.

The service started with a parade in front of the cathedral which was led by the National Standard of the Royal Naval Association, and the standard of the City of Glasgow RNA. Our members formed up along with Sea Cadet units from TS Galatea, TS Neptune and The volunteer band from HMS Neptune. The units were inspected by Rear Admiral Chris Hockley, Flag Officer, Scotland and Northern Ireland, who also did a reading in the cathedral.

The service was led by The Revd, Dr Laurence Whitley, Minister of Glasgow Cathedral.
The Revd, David Potterton, Principal Chaplin, The Sailors’ Society based in Southampton gave the sermon.
