Executive members of the British Legion-Bahamas Branch (BLBB) paid a courtesy call on the Commander Defence Force, Commodore Raymond King on November 10, 2020 at Defence Headquarters, John. F. Kennedy Drive.
Led by Chairman Adina Munroe and her Executive Officers, the BLBB team used the opportunity to pin a poppy on the uniform of Commodore King, who in return presented her with a financial donation to assist with the work of the organization.
Also, in attendance was Commander Natasha Miller, RBDF Liaison Officer for the BLBB. Commodore King thanked the Executive team and commended them for their outstanding roles in keeping the memories of the fallen soldiers.
The poppy represents the sacrifice made by the fallen and has become a lasting memorial symbol to those who died in World Wars I and II. Poppies are worn on the left of one’s attire, close to the heart. As the current COVID pandemic affects the country, many activities by the British Legion-Bahamas Branch have been postponed this year.
