Minister of National Security the Hon. Marvin Dames and the staff of the Ministry of National Security acknowledge the passing of Senior Commander Amos Rolle, whose contribution to the Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) and the country has been etched in history for being the first Bahamian Commander Defence Force and the Commanding Officer for HMBS Flamingo and Marlin, respectively, and, who was successful in returning 14 survivors of HMBS Flamingo safely home after being attacked and sunk by Cuban jet fighters.  All those who would have met Amos Rolle will no doubt treasure the memories.

The Hon. Minister and the Ministry extends deepest condolences to the spouse of the late Senior Commander Rolle, Mrs. Pauline Rolle, his children:  Kerry, Cathy, Anthea, Nadina, Jason and Yonae, grand-children, great grand-children, family, loved ones and the men and women of the RBDF.

May His soul rest in peace and it is our prayer that God would grant comfort and peace to all those whose hearts ache in this difficult period.
