‘We regret to announce the death of Mr E Philcox, part proprietor of the New Albertine yacht and other craft, who passed away suddenly on Wednesday last.
The deceased was a well known figure on the Hastings front in the vicinity of the Queens Hotel Stade and was one of the oldest members of the fraternity to which he belonged, his connection with it dating back some 30 years.
He always takes a great
interest in the sailing races at the Regatta and collected the money for the prizes. His death occurred whilst the Rowing Club Regatta was in progress last Wednesday. Mr Philcox was much respected and his death will be generally regretted.
