A spokesman said: “On June 15, 2020, USAF First Lt Kenneth Allen was killed when his plane crashed off Flamborough Head.

“Kage was a member of our church and so we have organised a memorial sailing on the Yorkshire Belle to conduct a short service and to lay a wreath at sea.

“The pandemic prevented a service at the time, but on July 9 (Armed Forces Day) there will be a short service of remembrance at sea.”
