Erskine marks World Maritime Day

Today Erskine marks World Maritime Day. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the professionalism and sacrifice of the two million seafarers who serve on the world’s merchant fleet. Here at Erskine we are very proud to care for many brave seafarers such as 97 year old Robert Johnston who served as a Royal Navy gunner. From the HMS Scylla on D-Day Robert was one of the many brave seamen protecting the open boats as they were being targeted by German gunners. He also experienced the horrors of the Arctic Convoys. We are very proud to salute all seafarers, past and present, for the sacrifices they made for our freedom. #proudtocare #worldmartimeday
