Farewell Bernie

Bernie Jordan, the Hove resident and war veteran who stole our nation's heart in June last year when he took off for Normandy alone so he could attend the D-Day commemorations, has died aged 90.


That his trip turned out to be his last adventure makes it all the more poignant. He was a remarkable man who gave a lifetime of public service, both as a serviceman who fought for our nation and a local politician who strove for our city. 

We often say, 'if only there were more like him', but I prefer to think that people like Bernie showed us just what can be achieved in one life and use it as inspiration for our's. All the best, Peter
