Marsh Harbour, Abaco, Bahamas Sunday, November 14, 2004
The Uniformed Youth Organizations of Abaco held their annual Remembrance Day Procession and Ceremony on Sunday, November 14, 2004.
Following the 11:00 a.m. service, the Abaco Community Band, and members of the Royal Bahamas Police Force left Aldersgate Methodist Church at 12:30 p.m. , and travelled by car (due to inclement weather) to the Independence Circle at the Marsh Harbour Public Dock, where the ceremony will be held.
Remembrance Day is observed in the Commonwealth, on the second Sunday in November to commemorate the lives of those who lost their lives in the two World Wars. Numerous Bahamians fought in both wars, but few survivors remain today. Prominent Abaconians Leonard Thompson and Chester Thompson are World War veterans. Mr. Leonard Thompson was present for the ceremony. A wreath was laid by ASP Wayne Miller, Officer in charge of the Abaco Division of the RBPF.
The Abaco celebrations also pay tribute to four members of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, Austin Smith, Fenrick Sturrip, David Tucker, and Edward Williams, who were killed in the strafing of the HMBS Flamingo by a Cuban warplane in 1980. Williams was also an Officer of The Boys' Brigade.
