Mr Brown, his Wife and Daughter visited the unit in February 2016 to hand into our
care the standard belonging to the now disbanded Eastbourne Merchant Navy Association.
He was made most welcome and stayed after the presentation for Steve Scudder’s excellent
lecture on manual handling and lifting being part of our seamanship training programme.
Mr Brown’s Passing
Just a quick note to let you know that sadly my Dad passed away on July 20th, he
succumbed to Alzheimer’s, we scattered his ashes at sea between the two arms at Shoreham
last month, so the salty old sea dog is probably floating back to Malta where he
spent many a happy year in his youth when he was in the Royal Navy. He went on the
windiest day possible hence us not managing to make it out to sea and a lot of him
came back ashore with us, I was covered in his ashes and I’m sure he would have
had a damn good laugh at that. I hope you are making good use of his standard. Mum
said he really enjoyed his evening with you chaps.
