Remembrance Day rehearsals

It may have looked like the real thing, but what armed and unarmed units put on this morning in Heroes Square was just a dry run of this year’s Remembrance Day Parade.


The rehearsal came exactly one week before Barbadians pay tribute to those who lost their lives during the two World Wars at the parade and inter-denominational service at the Cenotaph at 8 a.m.

Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave, Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and Chief Justice, Sir Marston Gibson, will lay wreaths, followed by other specially invited guests.

Armed units of the Barbados Defence Force’s Guard of Honour, the Barbados Coast Guard, the Royal Barbados Police Force and its Band, and the Barbados Cadet Corps, will be on parade.

Unarmed units will comprise members of the Barbados Fire Service, the Barbados Prison Service, the Barbados Girl Guides’ Association, the Band of the Barbados Cadet Corps, the St John’s Ambulance Brigade, the Barbados Red Cross and the Barbados Boy Scouts Association.
