For possibly the first time the Red Ensign, flag of Britain’s Merchant Navy, will fly atop Stoke by Nayland’s church tower on September 3.

The new nine-foot Red Ensign, which will be flying on Merchant Navy Day on St Mary’s church, was supplied by Seafarers UK, following a request by former Royal Navy captain and resident Richard Channon.

On September 2-4, Stoke by Nayland church tower will be floodlit at night to mark the day.
