About the Annual Pin

We Remember Submariners (WRS), produce an annual pin to remember those who have Crossed the Bar for the year in which the Pin represents. It has mainly been the sale of these Pins along with other items in the shop that gives WRS the funds to supply Molly Pins to the family for any Submariner Serving or Retired who have Crossed the Bar along with a wreath or a donation to a charity of the family’s choice, if they wish.

Those Submariners who sadly Cross the Bar, who are Pledged Pin Members will be represented as a Gold Poppy on the following pin years Pin. WRS also makes donations to other Submariner(s) related causes these are judged on a case by case basis.

The Pin year runs from the 1st July to the 30th June for every year. The Pin Year is the year in which the Pin is produced.

We place our order with the manufacture at the end of June with an expected delivery of approx. 4 weeks.

Everybody who has made a Pledge for Pins will receive an email, during July, inviting them to pay for the Pins for which they have pledged. The email will contain a link you will need to click on, this will take you to a page so you can check the information we have listed, especially the address to where you want your pins posted to, along with all payment details.

It is strongly recommended that if your circumstances change, for whatever reason during the year you make sure that we have the correct information for you.  To make any changes contact the Webmaster by .

At least make a note to one’s self to maybe check in June. It is your responsibility to ensure we have the correct information so that you get your Pins.

Once you have paid by whatever method is publicised & we have taken delivery, we at WRS will then post out your Pins. Any communication during this period should be done by email to Terri at .

You may ask why not Jan to Dec, well it was decided that WRS would have the Pins produced and dispatched to Pin Pledged members, so that they could have them in time to coincide with the Submariners Memorial on the Embankment, the weekend before the Cenotaph in November.

The Pin will also be made available in the Shop and outstations in Portsmouth, Plymouth,  Faslane, & various other places, sometime in August / September after we have processed the majority of the Pledge Pins. I would not rely on the Shop to buy your Pins in time for the Submariners Memorial on the Embankment. The only way to guarantee your Pins for November, is to Pledge during the year and make your payment promptly when asked for it in July.
