Coral Harbour Base, (RBDF): The Commander Defence Force, Commodore Raymond King along with the Officers and Marines of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force joins the world in commemorating veterans of World Wars I and II on Remembrance Day.  

Remembrance Day is a day recognized by The Bahamas and countries throughout the British colonies to memorialize the veterans who served during World Wars I and II in the British Army. This annual ceremony, which is observed the nearest Sunday to November 11th, marks the culmination of activities showcased by members of the British Legion-Bahamas Branch (BLBB).  

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic which has affected services throughout the world, there will not be the usual church service at Christ Church Cathedral to remember the men and women who served during the two World Wars.

This year, members of the British Legion-Bahamas Branch along with the Royal Bahamas Defence Force will attend a scaled-down wreath-laying ceremony at the Veterans War Cemetery, Infant View Road on Tuesday November 10, 2020.    

The Royal Bahamas Defence Force salutes the men and women who have answered the call of duty, and served their country with pride.
