The Bermuda Regiment has a new man in charge after Lt Col Michael Foster-Brown officially assumed command of the military unit at a handing-over ceremony this evening.

Lt Col Foster-Brown, 41, takes over from Lt Col Brian Gonsalves, who has been the Commanding Officer for the past four years.

The new commander - the first non-Bermudian to hold the post - officially accepted the Sword of Command at this evening's ceremony on the parade square at Warwick Camp. The event was also attended by His Excellency the Governor George Fergusson and Premier Craig Cannonier.
