Eastbourne will bid farewell to a former Royal Navy sailor today (7 December).
Ex-Petty Officer Arctic Convoy veteran and post-war RNR member, Bryan Blowes is to be committed to the sea this morning.
The coffin of the 101-year-old will be transported by the vessel MVS East Sussex 1 from Sovereign Harbour at 10am.
A bugler will sound the Last Post at 9.45am as the ship leaves the pontoon for Bryan’s final journey. Anyone wishing to pay their respects is being welcomed by his family.
