Webmasters Update – Dated 23/8/2019

Ladies and Gentlemen, Trustees and Members,

After 2 and a half years in the planning We Remember Submariners are proud to announce from Sunday the 1st September are launching the WRS Membership.

As WRS has grown over the years and also moved to charity status it was thought and decided to replace the Voting Members and the Pin Pledge System with a Membership. This will be entirely optional and will not affect anybody being able to purchase the annual pin, from the shop, website or outstations.

Annual membership will cost £10 for a full 12 months membership. For that, members will receive the yearly pin (worth £5.50), a member badge (worth £5.50) and 10% discount in the online shop (excluding the current yearly pin) and a periodic newsletter.

Any additional pins you require will still be available through outstations and from the online shop.

It important to only have a single account registered with our Website, please do not create a second account if you believe you already have one.

If you are considering becoming a member then please do make sure that you can log on using your WRS account and visit and update your profile page Edit My User Profile, as this will help both you and us before you register. If you have any issues then please contact where one of our team will be able to assist and sort out your issue.

WRS will be using WorldPay the same as the shop for collecting payments for membership. If you cancel out of the whole process at any point before submitting your membership payment, your membership will not be registered with us and you will have to follow the whole process again. All emails will be sent to the email address registered with your account.Please do check any Spam folders just in case these get caught in them.

If you do not want to use a bank or credit card to pay for your membership, can you please contact Nigel on to discuss alternative options.

2019 Pin Pledges

We Remember Submariners are pleased to announce that the 2019 pins have now been received into the shop and Terri and Nigel are working their socks off, sending supplies to outstations and packaging up orders that have been pledged and paid for. Thank you for your support.
There are still over 150 pledges that have remained unpaid; if you believe you have pledged for the 2019 pin, but have not received an email requesting payment, then please email Terri at and we will endeavour to supply all orders.
The shop manager and her little elves are working flat out to send out pins to all those that have pledged and paid for their orders. After all of the pledged pins have been sent out, the remainder will be distributed to outstations around the country and will shortly be available from the online shop.
