TWO events are being organised to remember North-East sailors who lost their lives at sea, as part of Merchant Navy Week.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, September 3, at 11am at the Memorial Garden opposite Redcar Cenotaph, with refreshments later at Redcar RAFA Club.

A veterans' parade will be held on Sunday, September 5, with members meeting at 10.15am at Redcar RAFA Club, in Newcommen Terrace. The march will start at 10.30am and will go to the Anchor Memorial, where a wreath-laying service will start at 11am.

Non-marching personnel should meet at the Anchor Memorial at 10.30am, and the public is invited to both events.
