Captain Ken #30 - Remembrance
Captain Ken Owen had a long career at sea which included sailing as master with Overseas Containers Limited (OCL), P&O Containers and P&O Nedlloyd. Ken is now retired and in 2020 he started writing a monthly article for publication using the pen name 'Captain Ken' in the Mellor Church Outlook magazine.
A number of articles that Ken has written are about his time at sea and he has very kindly agreed that we can share them here.
In the 30th article in the Captain Ken series on the PONL Heritage site, it seemed appropriate to pick an article that Ken Owen wrote to coincide with Remembrance Day 2021 in which he talks about the sacrifices made by the Merchant Navy.
This article was first published in the church magazine in November 2021.

Captain Ken Owen has kindly provided us with a new series of articles which will be published on a regular basis here. If you are interested in reading other articles that he has written which we haven't yet used then please feel free to go to mellorchurch.org/outlook-magazine/.
