Bearer.

GUARDSMAN Paul Hewitt, of Anfield, Liverpool, was referred to as a pallbearer at the funeral of the Queen Mother (Daily Post, April 9).

Hewitt was not a pallbearer, he had of course the honour of being a bearer (one who carries the coffin).

The pallbearers were senior officers who carried an imaginary pall over the coffin.

This mistake was also made by the BBC's royal correspondent Jennie Bond and Gordon Burns on BBC North West.
