A service was held at Christ Church Cathedral in observance of Remembrance Day. The service was attended by Governor General, His Excellency the Most Hon. Cornelius Smith as well as Acting Prime Minister, the Hon. Chester Cooper.
The homily was delivered by Archdeacon Dwight Rolle who told congregants, “it is fitting as we remember and honour the struggles, the patriotism, the courage, the sacrifice of those who answered the call of their respective countries giving service at a time of adverse danger. It is in this moment that we zero in on our home front. Let us never forget the ultimate sacrifices of our Defense Force officers who died on the HMBS Flamingo. Never forget our police officers who died in the line of duty. Peace and love are the ideals that we all should strive for and as Bahamians we must recommit to the cause.”
After the service wreaths were laid at the Cenotaph in the Garden of Remembrance.
