Proudly supporting the Merchant Navy

A red Merchant Navy flag with the Union Jack is flying at the Hovercraft Museum on a flag pole at the seafront.September 3rd every year marks Merchant Navy Day, celebrating this often forgotten service. Many of our members either serve or have served in the MN and this year The Hovercraft Museum is pleased to be supporting charity Seafarers UK by flying a Red Ensign, joining over 600 other institutions around the UK.
