The RNR Officers’ Club Liverpool, more commonly known as the Sea Urchins, was formed in 1921 and so its Centenary in 2021 is rapidly approaching. To mark this special occasion the Club is to publish a book which will include a biography of all the Past Presidents and celebrate the contribution of Reservists to the Maritime History of Liverpool.
In the past, they have received enquiries about some Past Presidents from their descendants who have been researching their family tree and we believe that there may well be a host of material available which could be useful to us in our compilation.
So the Sea Urchins are asking if anyone whose grandparent or great grandparent was one of their Presidents or anyone with information about the early days of the Sea Urchins to please get in touch, as they would love to have information or photos about the Presidents/Sea Urchins or memorabilia that we could use and include.
Many of their Past Presidents in the early days were Merchant Navy Officers as well as Officers in the Royal Naval Reserve.
The list of Presidents can be found at www.rnrofficersclubliverpool.org/history/presidents/
If you do have any information then please contact Lieutenant Commander John Glover at email@example.com
The Sea Urchins is a great crowd, and they welcome new members. Details of how to join are on the Club website. www.rnrofficersclubliverpool.org The Club is very active with 130 members and holds monthly lunches and an annual dinner all at HMS Eaglet, Brunswick Dock as well as other events throughout the year in close cooperation with HMS Eaglet.
