The Northumbria Unit of nautical charity, The Maritime Volunteer Service will lead a

small procession of vessels up the River Tyne on Sunday November 12th before stopping between the iconic Millennium and Tyne Bridges to take part in the two-minute silence at 11am where they will place a special wreath into the river.

Head of Unit, Volunteer Officer Angela Carrington said: “This is the fifth year we’ve arranged the parade of sail. It’s an appropriate way for us to remember those who gave their lives in conflicts and in particular those who were serving in the Royal Navy and Merchant Navy.”

Other river users including Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service, Northumbria Police, private boat owners and the North East Maritime Trust are expected to join the parade.

Boat users can contact Volunteer Officer Keith Newman to book their place in the parade on 07814 397951.
