LETTER: Remembering lifeboat crew

On November 20, an overcast, cold windswept day, with drizzle in the air, I once again felt privileged and honoured as the lifeboat operations manager at Rye Harbour, to take my place among lifeboat crewmen from Rye Harbour and Hastings to honour, by laying flowers, those 17 men that lost their lives on November 15, 1928 aboard the ill-fated lifeboat ‘Mary Stanford’.

No! No! Absolutely not! Paul Lendon (Observer, 18 November) wants to change the name of the Rother area of East Sussex to Bexhill and District because ‘it really does not do much for Bexhill’.

LETTER: A fitting and memorable day

The two-minute silence on Armistice Day is a period of silent contemplation, prayer and reflection; a gesture of respect for those who have died recently or as part of a tragic historical event.

LETTER: Britain has shot itself in the foot

David Daniels’ letter in last week’s Observer has reinforced my belief that the balance of advantage would have been for the UK to remain a member of a grouping we were striving to join when I was helping to promote British trade in France nearly 50 years ago. Even persuasive leavers like Barry Jones have done little to allay my fears.

LETTER: Countries do not pay into budget

Oh dear! David Daniels CBE owes me an apology! Had he carried out the most basic homework by consulting the official EU, EFTA-EEA, Switzerland websites (rather than remain propaganda) he would find my statement that non-EEA Switzerland and Norway do not pay into the 28-nation EU Budget is factually correct (21/10/16).
