HE CARRIED NO TITLE and was bestowed no honour.
But from the number of people who turned out yesterday both at the church and later the Westbury Cemetery, where his body was interred, it was evident the esteem in which the late Rudolph Browne was held.
Former Prime Minister Owen Arthur and Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley along with scores of Barbados Labour Party (BLP) members and supporters joined relatives and friends who packed the Our Lady, Queen of the Universe, Roman Catholic Church in Black Rock, St Michael to pay their last respects.
But, it was not only the members of his beloved BLP who turned out to be part of this final farewell. So too, were members of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) along many fisherfolk, as well as present and former workers of the Bridgetown Port. (ES)
