Sharing history of Royal Bermuda Regiment
The 50th anniversary history of the Royal Bermuda Regiment is to have its official launch this weekend.
The author, Tony McWilliam, will be on hand at Brown and Co from noon to 2pm on Saturday to sign copies of Royal Bermuda Regiment — 50 Years Strong.
The 160-page book features interviews with former and serving soldiers and charts the history of the RBR since it was formed in 1965 through the amalgamation of the Bermuda Militia Artillery and the Bermuda Rifles, formerly the Bermuda Volunteer Rifle Corps.
Regiment Commanding Officer Lieutenant Colonel Michael Foster-Brown said: “We’re thrilled to have such a professional and comprehensive publication which reflects 50 years of history and the service of what is now the Royal Bermuda Regiment.
“The author has done a great job in putting together the story of the Regiment, its roles and its significance to Bermuda.”
Col Foster-Brown, who will hand over command to Major David Curley and return to the British Army next month, added: “To have been in command during for the 50th anniversary period, including the award of the Royal title, and to have a chance to help shape the events has been very special and humbling.”
The book, published by the National Museum of Bermuda Press under the auspices of the Bermuda Regiment Charitable Trust, costs $50.
