Grosvenor Rowing Club Remembers

The Duke of Westminster was jovial, yet reflective, at a ceremony to name a boat after a First World War sapper at the Grosvenor Rowing Club today, November 8.


His Grace cracked open a bottle of champagne over the boat, naming it Lt Thomas Higgins, after a member of the club who died in  1916.  Lt Higgins's great-niece Liz Moore, of Rossett, was also at the ceremony to commemorate her great uncle's ultimate sacrifice.
