Delivering the sermon, Rector of St Luke Anglican Church, Reverend Davidson Bowen, praised the BDF for assisting in maintaining stability in the country over the years, saying it was through love of country that they bear arms.

“Service is meaningless without love. Selfless service comes through love,” Rev Bowen said.

At the end of the 90 minute-service Sir Elliott took the salute outside the church. (NC)
