Inspector Derrick Golding to represent BPS at Queen’s funeral
The Bermuda Police Service will be represented at the Queen’s state funeral in London on Monday.
Inspector Derrick Golding will take part in ceremonial duties during the funeral after an invitation was sent from the Metropolitan police.
Acting Deputy Commissioner Martin Weekes said: “It all came about after an invitation was received from Sir Mark Rowley, Commissioner of The Metropolitan Police in London, for all British Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies to each send a representative officer to the UK to take part in Ceremonial Duties.
“Inspector Golding was selected by the BPS’ Senior Leadership Team to represent Bermuda at this prestigious occasion. Inspector Golding, recently promoted to the rank of Inspector was Guard Commander at the Proclamation Ceremony Parade on Front Street to mark the Ascension of King Charles III this past weekend.”
Mr Golding is a former BPS Drill Sergeant and was the Baton of Honour recipient on his Recruit Foundation Course. He has represented the BPS on numerous parades and other ceremonial functions since joining the Service as a Cadet in 2004.
