A BIG thank you to all those who have contributed photographs.
We are still looking for good photographs of MN Memorials to post on this website.
If you have any or can take some, please send to Webmaster.
(In order to present the best possible aspect, the photographs should be without people)
Merchant Navy Memorial Bristol
My images from its unveiling by HRH Princess Anne in 2001 until the present day. The video starts with images of Welsh Back 1931 and c1900 the site of the present memorial. The music is Eternal Father the seafarers hymn.
A remarkable achievement by the Bristol Merchant Navy Association in raising this memorial with the support of the Bristol and surrounding public without which it would not have been possible.
This great maritime city now has a memorial to all those seafarers who made her what she is today and who are still playing a vital role in the life of our nation.
Towards the end of the video can be seen the stained glass tribute I had the pleasure to design which is in St Stephens Church City.
The complete memorial was designed by David Backhouse and the stone came from the Tarn region of France part of the Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées .
