Yesterday [Apr 25] marked centenary Anzac Day commemorations in Bermuda, with a dawn service on Coral Beach beginning at 6.15am, with a commemorative service following at 5.00pm at the Military Cemetery on Secretary Road in St George’s.

The gathered crowd included St George’s Mayor Garth Rothwell, Senator Jeff Baron, Pipe Major David Frith, members of the Bermuda ANZAC group, the Royal Artillery Association and more. The flag party was provided by Sea Cadets of TS Admiral Somers under command of Lt [SCC] Michael Frith, and the service was overseen by Major the Rev’d W. David Raths.
