Consistent with the Commander Defence Force, Commodore Raymond King’s command philosophy and priority of enhancing the morale and welfare of serving members and veterans, the Royal Bahamas Defence Force paid final respect respects for former comrade, the late Able Mechanic Eugene Weir.

Following a memorial service at Bethel Baptist Church, Meeting Street on Saturday January 8, 2020, the cremated remains of Able Mechanic Weir was taken aboard a Defence Force vessel and his ashes was spread at sea.

Ms. Donna Weir, Wife of the deceased Marine, along with family members went aboard patrol craft P-127 to spread his ashes outside the harbour.
