Remembrance Day this year will again be observed with the holding of a parade and a short inter-denominational service at the War Memorial in National Heroes Square on Sunday, November 8. It will get under way at 8:00 a.m.

The ceremony will see several uniformed groups on parade. These will include the Barbados Defence Force, the Royal Barbados Police Force, the Barbados Cadet Corps, the Barbados Legion and the Barbados Red Cross Association.

At the conclusion of the ???Two Minutes Silence’ and the ???Sounding of the Last Post’, wreaths will be laid at the Cenotaph by the Governor General, Sir Clifford Husbands; Prime Minister, David Thompson; Leader of the Opposition, Mia Mottley; members of the diplomatic corps and specially invited guests.

Private individuals who wish to lay wreaths may do so at the end of the service. However, these persons should immediately notify the Cabinet Office, Government Headquarters, Bay Street, St. Michael, so that suitable arrangements may be made to facilitate them.

Relatives of those servicemen who gave their lives during the two World Wars, members of the general public and any public officers who wish to attend the service should collect tickets from the Cabinet Office.
