Ceremony honours BMA
The contribution of the Bermuda Militia Artillery during the First World War was honoured yesterday.
Dignitaries and uniformed services laid wreaths at the BMA memorial in St George to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the conflict.
Fred Richardson, president of the Royal Artillery Association, said: “It’s very important to remember those who served, particularly this year.
“It was a long time ago, but that makes it even more important to remember them.”
Mr Richardson thanked John Rankin, the Governor; Walter Roban, the Deputy Premier; Craig Cannonier, the Opposition leader; Quinell Francis, the Mayor of St George; and Constance Dierman, the US Consul General, for their part in the ceremony.
