Island's latest Captain of the Parish sworn in at governor's house

The island has a new Captain of the Parish after a ceremony at the governor's house.

Paul Costain was sworn in as Captain of the Parish of Rushen at Government House, and was presented with a Badge of Office and framed warrant

The office's history goes back to 1626, when it meant the head of a local militia which defended the Island in case of invasion.

In modern times, the title is largely ceremonial.
