Regs4ships Director Mick Caulkin was delighted to be recently elected to the Honourable Company of Master Mariners. He joined as a Member at a declaration ceremony on board the HQS Wellington, moored on the north bank of the River Thames in London.
Full members automatically become Freemen of the Honourable Company, which is a City of London livery company that was formed in 1926. The three main interests of the company are: Professional Standards, Education & Training and Charitable Giving. Captain Mick Caulkin leads the Training and Safety Management business at Regs4ships Limited and looks forward to making an active contribution.
The ceremony was uniquely unusual in that Mick’s declaration was watched by his son Sam, a deck cadet at Carnival UK who has been an apprentice at the Honourable Company for the three years of his cadetship. Normally fathers watch their sons joining the professional organisations, not the other way round!
There was a brief celebration on the deck of HQS Wellington after the ceremony, there was even time for Mick to demonstrate at the wheel how it was done “in the good old days” to his son.
