Ramsey to remember

Today (Saturday) marks the 100th anniversary of the death of the first Ramsey resident in World War One.

As a mark of respect, commissioners chairman, Captain Nigel Malpass, and a representative of the Royal British Legion, will attend the Cenotaph in the town at nine o’clock this morning.

A wooden remembrance cross bearing a photograph, name and date of loss of Alfred Corlett will be placed there, following which a few moments of reflection will be observed.

Private Corlett served as a driver in the Royal Field Artillery and died in service aged 31.

His brother Ceasar Corlett also served in the Royal Field Artillery and tragically lost his life during the conflict in March 1918.
