Lews Castle College welcomes the newest intake of future Merchant Navy seafarers to join our NQ Access to Merchant Navy Officer Cadetship program. Photographed with the lecturers from the Maritime Department, flying the Red Ensign to join with hundreds of other groups around the country on 03rd of September in showing Lews Castle College support for national Merchant Navy day.

Organised by Seafarer UK, and The Merchant Nay Fund, Merchant Navy day honours the sacrifice of the brave men and women who kept our “island nation” aloft during both World Wars, and shows recognition in celebrating the modern Merchant Seafarers that are responsible for the carriage of over 95% of the UK’s imports.
