About the Annual Pin

We Remember Submariners (WRS), produce an annual pin to remember the submariners who have sadly died during the year that the pin represents. It has mainly been the sale of these pins, together with other merchandise in the online shop, that provides WRS with the funds to supply 'Moly' pins to the family of any submariner, either serving or retired, who have crossed the bar, along with a wreath or a donation to a charity of the family’s choice, should they wish.

In addition to the above, those who are pledged pin members or serving when they Cross the Bar, will be represented as a gold poppy on the following years pin.

WRS also makes donations to other submarine related causes and these are judged on a case by case basis.

The pin year runs from the 1st January to the 31st December. The pin year is the year that the pin is produced, e.g  During 2018 we are running the 2019 pin list so the pin can be ordered and made available for sale in July/August 2019 so that they are available in time to coincide with the Submariners Memorial on the Embankment, the weekend before the remembrance ceremony at the Cenotaph in Whtehall in November.

Everybody who has pledged to buy pins will receive an email, during July, inviting them to pay for the pins they have ordered. The email will contain a link which 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, during the year, you ensure that we have the correct information for you.  To make any changes contact the Webmaster. It is your responsibility to ensure we have the correct contact details for you.

Once you have paid and the pins have been delivered from the manufacturer, Terri at WRS will then post out your pins. Any communication during this period should be by email to Terri at .

After Terri has processed the pledged pins, the remainder will be made available in the online shop and locally at outstations in Portsmouth, Plymouth,  Faslane, Bristol, Barrow-in-Furness & various other regional outstations, from August. The pins are becoming highly sought-after collectors items.  The only way to guarantee receiving your pins before November, is to pledge during the year and make your payment quickly, when prompted.
