Mourners bid a sad farewell

MORE than 400 people from across the world gathered at St Luke's Church, Milland, for the funeral of former Bermuda Governor Sir Desmond Langley on Friday.

Among those present were Maj General Sir Sebestian Roberts, representing the Queen and Prince Philip, and Sir Richard Gozney, the present Governor of Bermuda.

Former commanding officers of the Bermuda Regiment David Birch and Alan Rance were present and two of Sir Desmond’s three ADCs from Bermuda, Larry Mussenden and William Madieros, also travelled to Milland.

They joined members of Sir Desmond’s family, his widow Lady Langley, and their children Harry and Charlotte for the service at St Luke’s Church.
