Thank you for my recent copy of the November/December issue. My issue relates to the article on page 8: Maritime barometer survey.
Coming straight to the point, I think after reading the feedback from the dumb public that we should rebrand ourselves.
We have – The Ambulance Service
We have – The Police Service
We have – The Fire Brigade Service
We should now have – The Merchant Marine Service!
Perhaps many more of the UK 'numbnuts' would appreciate our critically important contribution to keeping this wee island supplied with everything.
Wishing you a very pleasant festive season - most of the products WE supplied by the way.

In memory of Henk Lafèbre
I have been advised by his family that former Nautilus trustee director Henk Lafèbre died on 21 December after a brave battle with cancer.
