Hundreds of Barbadians are expected to witness this year’s Remembrance Day Parade and interdenominational service this Sunday, November 11, at the War Memorial, National Heroes Square, The City, commencing at 8:00 a.m.
The ceremony is held at this time every year as a fitting tribute to those ex-servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice during the two World Wars.
Governor General, Sir Elliott Belgrave; Prime Minister Freundel Stuart; Leader of the Opposition, Owen Arthur; and Members of the Diplomatic Corps, will lay wreaths during the solemn proceedings.
Members of the Barbados Legion are expected to be on parade along with contingents of the Barbados Defence Force, the Barbados Coast Guard, the Royal Barbados Police Force, the Barbados Cadet Corps, the Barbados Fire Service, the Barbados Prison Service, the Barbados Girl Guides’ Association, the St. John’s Ambulance Brigade, the Barbados Red Cross and the Barbados Boy Scouts Association.
The solemn ceremony will be carried live on radio and television.
