Burnham-On-Sea’s marine rescue services have remembered the town’s war dead on Remembrance Sunday.
Burnham-On-Sea RNLI laid a wreath at the Burnham-On-Sea War memorial before returning to the lifeboat station for an act of remembrance. The volunteer crews had been out training, and returned early for a two-minute socially distanced silence at 11am at their station. Julie Baker, wife of Launch Authority Lyndon Baker, played ‘The last Post’ on a clarinet.
Separately, several volunteers from BARB Search & Rescue laid a wreath on bahelf of the charity at Burnham’s War Memorial. They marked the silence by remembering those local people who gave their lives in the two World Wars.
