CWGC marks Merchant Navy Day
Since 2000, the men and women of the Merchant Navy who gave their lives to preserve the life of the nation during the two world wars have been honoured on 3 September. Today, the Red Ensign – the UK Merchant Navy’s official flag - will be flown above buildings across the UK in memory of those lost. Meanwhile, the annual Merchant Navy Day service will take place at the CWGC Tower Hill Memorial, which commemorates more than 35,000 men and women of the Merchant Navy and Fishing Fleets.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) is searching for the specific lot or the cemetery of Private John McLeod's interrment.
