Erewash paid its respects to 40,000 brave comrades who died during the Second World War on Merchant Navy Day.

The Mayor of Erewash, Councillor Kevin Miller, laid a wreath.

He said: “It is important to honour the role played by merchant seafarers during the Second World War, many of who paid the ultimate sacrifice. “Erewash Borough Council is proud to again fly the ‘Red Duster’ above both its Town Halls in recognition of everything they did for this country.”
