Welcome to "Seabay" the 2nd HMS Manchester Associations very own emporium!!  In this section of the website you will find details of all discounts and special offers that are available to our members via the Defence Discount Directory (yes, some far sighted business folk actually extend their forces discounts to the "Veteran" community, although sadly not the Rail industry), as well as items for sale from our own "slop room".  We have also included a section where our shipmates can advertise their own business activities, and also a section with general "For Sale" items.  It costs nothing to advertise, and everything here is displayed in absolute good faith.

Obviously The 2nd HMS Manchester Association cannot accept any responsibility for the goods and services displayed here - standfast the Slop Room.

Veterans - Prove your eligibility!

For all of those Veterans amongst you, there is now a new way that you can prove your eligibility for discounts.

The vast majority of the 521 companies advertising on www.forcesdiscounts-mod.co.uk extend their offers to Veterans.  A Veteran can prove their eligibility by downloading a certificate of eligibility from any of the sections within www.forcesdiscounts-mod.co.uk or by using their veterans badge*

* men and women who served in HM Armed Forces before and/or during World War II are entitled to a Veterans Badge.  To find out more please visit www.veterans-uk.info/vets_badge/vets_badge.htm
