Ending with a bang
WELLINGTON: A New Zealand man will go out with a bang today when his ashes are fired from a cannon over Wellington Harbour during a ceremony to mark Captain James Cook’s birthday.
The ashes of Alfonse Kennedy Goss, known as AK, 58, who died last year from cancer, will be fired from an artillery piece by his friends from the Wellington Cannon Society, newswire.co.nz reported.
‘‘Each time you hear a boom there will be a little bit of AK’s ashes in every one,’’ society founder Bryan Townsend said. AFP
