Oil Tanker in the Suez Canal
The third of September is Merchant Navy Day in the UK.
'Lest we Forget'
Most commodities, materials and a good amount of food, reaching the average household, at one time or an other have traveled in a ship. Take for instance your car. The ore, it is made from. The fuel to smelt the ore. The resultant Steel. The chemicals and oil for plastics. Rubber for the tyres. Finally the oil and petrol to make it go to take you to the supermarket for you to buy life’s necessities and luxuries. Most, were transported by Ship, crewed by Merchant Seamen of many nationalities.
Thank you if you have read this far.
