Lewes Mayor Jim Ford addresses the audience prior to the laying of the wreath. Ford talked about the six core values of the city - number one being “Lewes has a historical relation to the sea.”
Laying the wreath at the Unknown Sailors Cemetery Monument are (l-r) Tim Precht, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary; William Manthorpe, U.S. Navy Capt (retired); Capt. Jack Hearn, Merchant Marines; and Jack Hearn, website developer. The monument reads “Lewes has been a Port-of-Call and a harbor-of-refuge since the 17th Century. For generations during the age of sail, a public burial ground in the immediate locality became the final resting place for hundreds of sailors who lost their lives and whose unidentified bodies were here cast ashore. In remembrance of those persons whose remains are sheltered on this shore, this memorial is placed. May they find eternal repose.”
