Greenwich Sea Cadets
The Clockmakers are proud to contribute towards the funding of the valuable work of the Greenwich Sea Cadets who in turn are represented at the annual Livery Dinner, and who contribute to the ceremony of the evening by providing a 'carpet guard'.
With many Astronomers Royal as Company Masters and members throughout our history, the Clockmakers' Company is affiliated to University College London's Observatory at Mill Hill in North London. Each year, we present an award to their highest achieving student.
We are affiliated to the Royal Navy’s Ice Patrol Ship HMS Protector. We present an annual award to the most promising crew member.
Protector is a hydrographic research vessel, equipped with a variety of equipment for inshore and offshore oceanographic survey supplemented with Royal Navy Hydrographical and Meteorological specialist Officers and Ratings. She is charged with the “patrol and survey of the Antarctic and South Atlantic, maintaining a Sovereign Presence with Defence Diplomacy, and support of the global community of Antarctica”.
In early 2020, Assistant Captain Tony Gray and Liveryman Robert Sales visited Protector to see her crew in action.
