Charity names Weymouth boat after Royal Marine James Wright
A charity has honoured a Royal Marine killed in Afghanistan by naming a boat after him.
The Maritime Volunteer Service (MVS) has called its new rigged inflatable James Wright in tribute to the Marine from Weymouth, Dorset.
The boat was named during a ceremony at Wey Valley School, where Marine Wright had been a pupil. The event was attended by family, friends and 40 Royal Marines.
The MVS provides support for the emergency services and the Weymouth Harbour Master, Rob Chick, head of the service at Weymouth, said: “By displaying his name on our sea-going rib, we will keep his name alive for years to come in the public eye.”
