Daily Echo: Bust honour for Mary Rose diver Bust honour for Mary Rose diver

THE diver who discovered the location of the wreck of the Mary Rose has been honoured by county bosses.

A bust of author, military historian and amateur diver Alexander McKee, who died 22 years ago, was unveiled at Hayling Island Library by his daughter Cornelia Hallett, along with culture boss Councillor Keith Chapman.

The bronze statue is a twin to the one unveiled by Mr McKee’s widow, Ilse, who is 93, at the Mary Rose Museum in April.

It was created by Devon-based sculptor Luke Shepherd working from film and photograph and regularly taking the advice of Mr McKee’s family.
