Winners Of The Glass Sellers Submarine Tankard

On 24th March 1987 the Court approved the adoption of the Submarine HMS Conqueror. This followed a suggestion from The Commander-in-Chief Home Fleet Admiral Sir John Woodward KCB.ADC, then Flag Officer Submarines and an Honorary Liveryman of the Glass Sellers Company.

The initial visit to HMS Conqueror by senior members of the Livery was in Plymouth on 4th September 1987. It was decided that an engraved glass Tankard be presented annually to the member of the adopted ship’s company deemed to have contributed most to the maintenance of the well-being and morale of the crew and their families during each year, being over and above their normal duties.

The Company has changed the submarine adopted as individual boats have been de-commissioned. The Award is normally presented at the new Master’s Installation Dinner in December, but that depends on whether the Submarine is away on active service. The first presentation was made in the presence of Admiral Sir John Woodward and Rear Admiral Frank Grenier, the then new Flag Officer Submarines.
