TOWN councillors have agreed to let an author delve into their archives for a forthcoming book about Captain Fryatt and the SS Brussels.

Charles Fryatt was captured on the SS Brussels which was bound for Harwich in 1916 and later killed.

Harwich Town Councillor Garry Calver said: “The story is so important to Harwich and anything we can do to help has got to be good for the town.”
