Mail’s navy search

Are you a jolly Jack Tar, or are you descended from one?

If so, the Royal Mail is urging you to get in touch.

The service is looking for people, their family and descendants who worked for the Merchant Navy over the past 200 years as part of plans to release a new series of limited edition Merchant Navy stamps, which will go on sale in September.

Those wishing to share their stories should e-mail, or call Miki on 07900 690 574.
