Minute silences to be held to mark anniversaries of Haut du Mont explosion and trawler tragedy

Minute silences will be held this week to mark the one-year anniversaries of two tragedies which claimed the lives of 13 people. The government has announced that public workers will fall silent at noon on Friday to remember fisherman Michael Michieli and his two crew – Jervis Baligat and Larry Simyunn – who were killed when their trawler was in collision with the Commodore Goodwill freight ship. Another silence will be observed at noon on Sunday to mark the first anniversary of the explosion at Haut du Mont on Pier Road. Nine residents – 72-year-old Peter Bowler, Raymie Brown (71), Romeu and Louise De Almeida (67 and 64 years), Derek and Sylvia Ellis (61 and 73 years), Ken and Jane Ralph (72 and 71 years) and 63-year-old Billy Marsden – were killed in the blast.
