There’s snow stopping him

Charles Cowling


 

 

From the Birmingham Mail

Motorbike-mad Horace Craythorne was given a high-octane send-off – when he made his last journey in a sidecar hearse.

The old soldier – who died earlier this month aged 97 – beat the snow by travelling to a Midland crematorium in fitting style yesterday, his coffin draped in a Union flag.

The Rev Paul Sinclair, of motorcycle hearse service Motorcycle Funerals, led the service after riding the bike to which the sidecar was attached.

Touching. Big up to the doughty Paul for being undeflected by the weather.
