We would like to pay tribute in this page to those who went before us and to those with whom we served and who have crossed the bar. It was an honour to have served with you and to have called you our friend. Rest in Peace
Sunset and evening star, and one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar, when I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep, too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell, and after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell, when I embark;
For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place the flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face when I have crost the bar.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
A Submariners’ Prayer
O Father hear our prayer to Thee From your humble servants beneath the sea:
In the depths of ocean oft we stray, so far from night, so far from day;
We would ask your guiding light to glow to make our journey safe below.
Please oft times grant us patient mind, then ‘ere the darkness, won’t us blind.
We seek thy protection from the deep and grant us peace whene’er we sleep.
Of our homes and loved ones far away we ask you care for them each day,
Until we surface once again, to drink the air and feel the rain.
We ask your guiding hand to show a safe progression, sure and slow.
Dear Lord please hear our prayer to Thee from your humble servants beneath the sea.
