This morning [Nov.11], people gathered in Victoria Park to hold a short Remembrance Service to honour the men of the Bermuda Volunteer Rifle Corps [BVRC] who served and died overseas in World War l [1914 -1918] and World War ll [1939 – 1945].
Victoria Park is home to the bronze granite memorial to the 40 men who died in WWI, and the 18 who died in WWII is in Victoria Park.
Like the larger national Front Street ceremony, this Victoria Park event features the bugle calls of the Last Post and Reveille, the traditional two minutes silence, and the laying of wreaths. This service is held annually and is organised by the BVRC Association.
