Photo Set #1: 2018 Remembrance Day Parade

November 11, 2018

Crowds of people lined Front Street this morning [Nov 11] for the Remembrance Day Parade, as they paid tribute to the island’s war veterans who served in the two World Wars and other international conflicts.

Between World War One [1914-1918] and World War Two [1939-1945], approximately 600 Bermudians served overseas, some of whom made the ultimate sacrifice and did not return home.

Those on Parade this morning included the Royal Bermuda Regiment, Bermuda Police Service, Cadets and of course the island’s war veterans, who received the loudest applause of the morning.

Wreaths were laid by Premier David Burt, Opposition Leader Craig Cannonier, Governor John Rankin, Hamilton Mayor Charles Gosling, as well as representatives from 1st Battalion Caribbean Regiment, War Veterans Association, Bermuda Militia Infantry,  Bermuda Legion, Royal Bermuda Regiment, Defence Board, Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service, Bermuda Police Service, Sea Cadets, Salvation Army and the U.S. Consulate.

The 1-hour live video replay of today’s Parade is below

Today also marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, and a series of events are being held today, as Bermuda joins nations around the world in marking the end of the conflict.

In addition to the wreath laying at the War Memorial and the Parade, today’s events will also include a Beacon Lighting Ceremony at Government House at 4.45pm.

Government House previously said that a recorded total of 544 Bermudians served in World War One, and of those 544 Bermudians, 53 were killed in action; 15 were wounded; 14 were taken prisoner of war; 4 were missing in action and 19 died of disease or wounds.

We will have additional photos later on, and you can view all our coverage of Remembrance Day here.

  1. Are you kidding me? says:

    Yes our seniors who paved the way for us all to enjoy the lifestyle that we all enjoy today ,,yet they are forgotten due to our selfishness these people deserve better at their age no one should be worrying about medical bills they have paid their Dues in Full look after our seniors,when ever those politicians come up with a plan wether we agree or not they have the money but yet when it comes to our seniors No it can never be done…

    • What is unfair is how Africa was sliced up like a fresh baked pie by European Countries to see which country would control the most wealthy areas. And through greed and power hungry leaders is the reason we had World War1.
      It was called the Partition of Africa or the Scramble for Africa.
      Study your History to understand present issues.

    Thank you to all the veterans, they are the real heroes. I think it was very insulting of the PLP to hold some silly Wakanda superhero party the night before Remembrance Day.

    • UpsetVoter says:

      @2 Bermudas

      Lets not forget that the Black war veterans did not receive any benefits until 2008, when the white war veterans received it from the very beginning, so how fair was that and your complaining about them dressing for a Wakanda theme!

      • And still came back to a Segregated Island, you’re B!+€#ing about a Wakanda theme, and in another month they will running around in red and white suits imitating Santa Clause.
        We celebrate movements that we can relate to, after being indoctrinated for centuries about Eurocentric themes.
        Thank you Veterans.

      • Question says:

        “Lets not forget that the Black war veterans did not receive any benefits until 2008, when the white war veterans received it from the very beginning…”
        Complete nonsense. Totally untrue. Another PLP myth.

    • PBanks says:

      Give me a break. It’s a party gala, not a party Remembrance Day event. Why are you using the holiday to throw shade on the political party you despise?

  3. Hurricane says:

    Very nice overhead shots, Bernews

  4. Unfair says:

    It simply did not look right. Why didn’t the veterans and or family march in and back out to the flag pole? Instead they started at the bottom of Parliament Street and it appeared at tge ebd thst tbey had been dismissed all together on Front Street.
