Merchant Navy Day - Raise the Red Ensign Ceremony

September 02, 2019

A Raise the Red Ensign Ceremony was held at Powys County Hall to mark Merchant Navy Day. 

Armed Forces Champion, Cllr Rosemarie Harris, Leader welcomed representatives of the Merchant Navy Association, the Royal Navy Association and the High Sheriff of Powys, David Peate. In her welcoming speech, she paid tribute to the brave men and women who in both World Wars brought vital supplies to the UK and transported critical military supplies to far flung battlefields, whilst enduring austere living conditions and long absences from home. Some were sunk, rescued and transferred to work on new ships. WWI loses totalled 2,479 ships and 14,287 men.

Cllr Harris said: “Merchant Navy Day highlights the important work today of many thousands of British Seafarers on the oceans of the world and who routinely face violent storms and mountainous seas. By volume 95% of the UK trade is transported by sea. Today gives the people of Powys the opportunity to show their appreciation to the merchant seafarers past and present that play a vital part in the economy of this county.

A Message from HRH The Earl of Wessex was read by Rear Admiral Mark Kerr, former Chief Executive of Powys County Council, who later Saluted the Ensign.

“Take a little care this day…” by Captain Joe Earl was read by the Ysgol Calon Cymru Head Boy, Liam Spence and Head Girl, Felicity Bulbia.

The Prayers and Blessing of the Red Ensign Flag was led by Rev Andrew Perrin. The Vote of Thanks was provided by Cllr Beverley Baynham, Chairman of the Council. Rhayader Male Voice Choir sang ‘Shenandoah’ and lead everyone present in the National Anthems to close the ceremony.

The Powys War Memorials Project worked in collaboration with History Points to create a World War trail around Brecon in Powys. 

The complete trail, which is just over 1.5 miles long, enables you to find out about 14 places of interest associated with World War 1. For example, 

The Plough Chapel, Brecon

In 1916, Nonconformists of all denominations gathered here for a lecture by the Rev Elvet Lewis of London. He said men serving in the army had found Christ, and there was more Christianity in the trenches than in the churches at home. He predicted a religious revival when the men returned after the war.

Remembering those who gave their all

Among the many who died in WW1 there were 1400 who were bell ringers.  A hundred years later the worldwide community of bell ringers has decided to honour their memory by recruiting and training 1400 new bell ringers in a special project called Ringing Remembers.

Some of those who died came from the area that is now Powys and the bell ringers of the county are already recruiting new ringers ready to ring on 11th November 2018 in commemoration of the end of the war.  But we need more and you could be one of them.

The British Isles are home to a particular style of bell ringing called 'change ringing' which is used to mark personal rites of passage like christenings, weddings and funerals and to celebrate civic and national events.  Although bells are mainly in church towers you don't have to go to church to be a bell ringer.  Ringers are a friendly and welcoming community of all ages and backgrounds and of all faiths and none. 

If you would like to know more about this satisfying activity and about Ringing Remembers in particular you can meet local ringers at forthcoming events in Brecon this July.  Brecon ringers will be taking part in the Community Day at Dering Lines on Sunday 8th July from 12.00 to 5.00 pm and would love to meet you there.

Later, on Saturday 21st July, the tower of St Mary's, Brecon, will be open for a 'ringing experience' day with an information point in church and the opportunity to see the bells and try your hand at learning to ring.  There will be four sessions starting at 10.15 am, 11.30 am, 2.00 pm and 3.15 pm.  It is best to book to be sure of a place.  For those who feel after this introduction that they would like to learn to ring there will be a fast track training course at St Mary's  from August to November.

To find out more and to book a place on 21st July please contact Kath Johnson by email at pckmj@tiscali.co.uk or by phone on 01874 658670.  For more information on Ringing Remembers email bells@big-ideas.org.
