More than 200 strangers attended the funeral in Portsmouth of a former Royal Marine – after a vicar put out a plea on Facebook, amid fears he would be buried without mourners.
But after Reverend Bob Mason posted a message on Facebook and contacted the Royal Marines Association, hundreds of people braved the cold to attend the ceremony at Milton Cemetery.
A small procession through the cemetery was led by Royal British Legion standard bearers followed by a group of flag-bearing motorcycles.
The service concluded with two buglers from the Royal Marines Band Service playing the Last Post.
