WAVING THE FLAG

Posted on 21 January 2011
Mick Vanner is the standard bearer and Stephen the Padre of the Essex Branch of the Submariners Association.

In recent weeks they have been very busy. Three of their ship-mates have recently died: Ian Nethercott, Charlie Deleay and Cliff Summerhayes. On each occasion, they have attended to take part in the services and offer their support to the bereaved.

Then, on the 15th January they attended the 61st Anniversary Service in St. George’s Chapel, Chatham Dockyard, to recall one of the most tragic peace-time accidents; the sinking of the submarine Truculent with the loss of 64 lives.
