Today, The Bahamas mourns the death of Sir Clifford Darling GCVO the fourth Governor-General of the Bahamas. Sir Clifford Darling born February 6th, 1922 on  Acklins Island Bahamas, served from 1992 until his retirement on January 2, 1995.

Sir Clifford Darling, no stranger to Bahamian politics, played quite an active role in that arena; he was a Senator from 1964–67, Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly from 1967-69, Minister of State in 1969, Labour and Welfare in 1971 and Labour and National Insurance from 1974-77.
