On Sunday, November 12, 2023, Deputy Commander Defence Force, Captain Shondell Pinder along with his Executive Team Members, Officers and Marines of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, joined other law enforcement agencies and civil groups in commemorating Remembrance Day held at Christ Church Cathedral.
Also in attendance was the Deputy to the Governor General of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, Ruby Ann Darling, the Prime Minister, The Honourable Philip Davis and other State officials.
Armistice Day, also known as Remembrance Day, marks the day World War I ended, at 11:00 a.m on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. This day is 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.
The church service at Christ Church Cathedral was followed by a ceremonial march consisting of dignitaries, various government and non-government organizations and youth groups which led to a second service in the Garden of Remembrance.
The Royal Bahamas Defence Force proudly honors the brave individuals who heeded the call of duty, serving their nation with unwavering pride. We stand committed to upholding that same dedication in our service.
