TS ROYALIST DELIVERS FOR ROYAL MAIL

18/08/16

As part of Royal Mail's 500 anniversary Sea Cadets' very own TS Royalist was paraded around Liverpool Docks on Thursday 18th August. In the build up to the unveiling TS Royalist has been re-creating the voyage of a historic mail ‘packet’ ship, sailing on a four day voyage from Greenock to Liverpool with Royal Mail staff's letters on board.

Sea Cadets helped to deliver mail to postal workers’ families in Liverpool’s Canning Half Tide dock when TS Royalist docked and experienced what the mail service was like in 1784 when they used a Royal Mail horse and cart being used to transport packages. 

Royal Mail Operations Director Rob Jenson said, “The voyage is about connecting the people who deliver day in day out for this great company. We are indebted to TS Royalist and Sea Cadets for helping us mark this special milestone in Royal Mail’s history.”
