RNR Officers Club Liverpool – Appeal for Memories and Records

The RNR Officers’ Club Liverpool, more commonly known as the Sea Urchins, was formed in 1921 and will thus celebrate its Centenary in 2021.

To mark this special occasion it is intended to publish a book about the Club which will include a biography of all the Past Presidents and celebrate the contribution of Reservists to the Maritime History of Liverpool. We are currently researching HMS Eaglet archives and the internet for information.

In the past we have received enquiries about some of our 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.

We would ask anyone whose grandparent or great grandparent was one of our Presidents or anyone with information about the early days of the Sea Urchins to please get in touch, as we would love to have information or photos about the Presidents/Sea Urchins or memorabilia that we could use and include.

Many of our 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 here
If you do have any information then please contact Lieutenant Commander John Glover at seaurchins2021@gmail.com

We also welcome new members and details of how to join may be found on the Club website.  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.
